Company: FALMOUTH UNIVERSITY
Falmouth University has a history of more than 100 years of creative thinking and design innovation. Established in 1902 as Falmouth School of Art, it has grown over a century to become a digital innovation hub. Today, its undergraduate and postgraduate courses represent the breadth of the creative industries, the fastest growing sector in the UK economy.
Our ambitious 2030 Strategy, ‘Doing it for Real’, is designed to deliver major growth in student numbers and income through portfolio diversification, innovation, research and commercial ventures. It will establish Falmouth as the market leader for creative industries and entrepreneurship education over the next decade, capitalising on our considerable assets in innovation-led research and business incubation.
The role of Director of the School of Film & Television is an exceptional opportunity to play a crucial part in the realisation of a bold and transformational vision for the future of Falmouth University.
The School of Film & Television is one of the University’s largest, constituent departments, which has taught filmmaking for over fifty years. Now, with state-of-the-art kit, world-class facilities, industry connections and enthusiasm for telling stories they produce award-winning, highly employable graduates equipped with the skills needed for the future economy.
To succeed in this post, you will be a recognised expert in your specialist area with an impressive track record in the field. However, it’s your leadership ability, confidence and commercial acumen that will help you win the respect of staff and students alike, along with a genuine commitment to delivering on Falmouth’s regional obligations and global ambitions.
You will understand not only the value of the creative industries to the cultural and economic success of Cornwall and the UK, but also the value and ‘spill-over’ benefits of creativity in other sectors.
With this being a senior-level position within the University a very competitive salary is on offer for the successful candidate alongside a best in class benefits package to include relocation assistance, if required. A professorial title may be conferred if the successful candidate meets the professorial criteria.
