What We're Looking For:

Experience in design and art-related tasks.

Background in a design technology or art environment, particularly with woodwork.

Knowledge of ceramics and kiln firing processes.

Familiarity with CAD/CAM equipment and software, especially Techsoft 2D Design and laser cutting.

An enhanced DBS check, as you'll be working directly with students.
