The Architectural Association School of Architecture is seeking a head of the audio-visual department to join its team in London.
Acknowledging the extensive use of moving images across all of the academic programmes on offer at the AA, the audio-visual department (an academic resource) supports teaching and learning throughout the school. In addition to coordinating learning resources and workflows determined by the syllabus, audio-visual maintains space for a wide range of video, audio and XR technologies. It also stocks a variety of equipment that is available to loan as required.
Significantly, the department also documents and stage-manages the school’s public programme and many other cultural events, many of which are streamed, archived and published.
As a department, audio-visual is committed to creativity, academic endeavour and the dissemination of the school’s culture and ideas. As the full-time head of department, this position requires the management of departmental staffing, procurement, workflow management and technological development. Key to curriculum and public programme delivery, the department relies upon many cross-departmental relationships. The head of audio-visual is a member of the academic resource team (ART), is responsible to the head of academic resources and is supported by two full-time technicians.
