The role

While ostensibly based at Chelsea College of Arts you will be required to have flexibility to support the delivery of academic learning activities within our lecture theatres, seminar spaces and studios, working across our three colleges (Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon) to ensure operational delivery as required. This is a full time, site-based role which may on occasion involve some flexible working to support after-hours events.

You’ll provide responsive on-demand in-person and remote assistance to staff, supporting them in their use of AV hardware and software for teaching, remote learning, lecture capture and live streaming.

Why choose us?

University of the Arts London is a vibrant world centre for innovation, drawing together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts.

Chelsea College of Arts is a prestigious establishment with a track record of teaching and nurturing impressive talent. Much of its success is down to its dedicated employees, and you will play an important role in shaping future creative professionals, and impact on the future of so many creative industries.

In return, UAL offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity.

Your Profile

With relevant qualifications to BA level in Art, Design or Performance and/ or equivalent industry experience and certification (Avixa CTS), you’ll have significant Audio-Visual support experience in a higher education or enterprise environment.

You’ll have gained knowledge of integrated audio visual solutions and related software and will be looking to develop your skills in sharing this knowledge in supporting colleagues. You’ll have a strong working knowledge of common switching, distribution and audio products – preferably Extron and AMX.

With demonstrable skills in safe and professional installation, you’ll have excellent general integration knowledge and experience. Where appropriate, you’ll be confident to lead on the design and installation of AV projects and subsequent user training.

Responsible for testing and diagnosing faults with our AV systems (AV over IP, HDBaseT), you’ll be able to carry out simple repairs or help facilitate repairs by external integrators where appropriate. Extron programming experience is highly desirable.

You’ll carry out regular preventative measures such as routine maintenance, testing and servicing tasks, some of which involve working at height.

You are approachable with good communication skills and even when working under pressure, you’re able to give clear and accurate information to ensure a high level of service delivery.

You’ll be able to demonstrate experience of working in a busy customer/ client facing role, where you provided technical support for AV hardware and software.

You’re a motivated, reliable and punctual individual who is able to work effectively and flexibly as part of a team and independently.
