In recent years the department has launched a number of innovative industry-led postgraduate programmes in diverse areas of documentary film making, broadcast, virtual reality and creative enterprise. This activity sits within the Public Anthropology section of the department, and due to the rapid growth of this activity we are now looking for a Centre Manager to coordinate all of this activity working closely with the Section Head, Departmental Manager and the Head of Department. In addition to these new postgraduate programmes, the department now also hosts the Open City Documentary Film Festival. This annual, internationally renowned film festival is being embedded into the activity of the department, and the Centre Manager will provide operational management support for finance and HR aspects of the festival, and ensure this is aligned with departmental and university guidelines. This is a new post and a truly exciting opportunity for someone to support the growth of Public Anthropology and work with an eclectic group of academics, film makers, editors and technicians.

This role is very varied, and although based within an academic department, will be working closely with many freelancers who work with us on the delivery of our film courses, this ranges from film makers, editors, virtual reality technicians to general film festival crew.
