Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally.

CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.
You will have extensive technical experience in digital media practice relating to some or all of the following: image and video editing, virtual reality and mixed reality development, desktop publishing, web design and open source, creative coding, games engines and virtual environments, physical computing, CAD 3D and render, networks.
You should have demonstrable experience of operational and strategic management in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary technical team within a HE environment and leading shared-workspace technical learning and facilitating technical learning activities delivered in innovative ways. You will have an active interest in sustainability initiatives in relation to your field.
