The School of Arts and Media is one of the leading centres for practice-based education in the creative disciplines in the North West. We offer research-informed specialist programmes which benefit from close relationships with the cultural industries. Our strengths include interdisciplinary and international projects, many of which are focused at MediaCity UK, a world class facility on a campus dedicated to broadcasting in all its forms and in close proximity to The Lowry and Imperial War Museum North.

We are looking to recruit to two part time Performance Technician posts (0.5 FTE, i.e. 18.125 hours per week) who will join the technical support team, working primarily to provide support in areas of live performance. The roles will include providing technical support for rehearsals, productions, projects, concerts and events, and managing the maintenance and administration of resources across the performance and rehearsal facilities. Reporting to the Technical Manager, the post holders will provide day-to-day support to students, staff, and external agencies, and manage the operation of the theatres and live performance spaces.

The holder of this post will join the technical team within Arts & Media, primarily supporting the areas of Performance, Music and Dance, and providing their expertise to all areas of the School where required.
Applicants should be aware that although the role will be assigned to the School of Arts & Media in the first
instance, we reserve the right to reassign the post to meet the future needs of the University.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and are working towards developing an inclusive working environment celebrating the diversity of our University community.

The vacancy will close at 11.59pm on the date specified.
