Art at Wellington, including Textiles and Photography, is a popular subject that enjoys a high profile and exemplary record of examination success. Our purpose-built Art School includes spacious studios with specialist areas for painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, photography, life-drawing and Harkness lessons. We also have excellent IT provisions such as a suite of Surface Studios and a separate History of Art seminar room and life drawing annexe -  the perfect environment to share your knowledge of Art and Photography.

Your main focus will be on providing support to teachers in the department and liaise with fellow technicians to ensure everything runs smoothly day-to-day. Helping students with activities like large format printing, studio shoots and processing film and photograms in the darkroom is also an important aspect of the role. You will also help with preparing canvases and boards for painting, framing pupil art and displaying it around the College, ordering and collecting art materials and providing technical support for digital devices.

To succeed, you’ll need a Degree in Art (with at least one specialism being Photography) or Photography, plus dark room literacy and specialist knowledge of Digital photography. You’ll also need a high level of IT literacy and good understanding of Adobe packages, digital media, film/animation and Large Format printing. A dedicated team player who strives for excellence, you work well without direction, have a high level of accuracy and numeracy and strong attention to detail. What’s more, you have the communication skills it takes to engage effectively with pupils, parents, staff and visitors alike and are keen to contribute towards the College community.

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package. So, if you’re enthusiastic, tactful and discreet, mindful of observing safeguarding and professional standards and keen to develop personally, apply today.
