We are one of the top-performing colleges in the country, situated in the cosmopolitan seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Working here offers the combination of both a wonderful place to work and a great city in which to live. Our students and staff are colourful, aspirational and hard-working – which is perhaps why 96% of employees would “recommend BHASVIC as a good place to work” and many of our students go on to Higher Education.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, experienced and well-organised Head of Department to lead and manage our outstanding Visual Arts provision. 

As a College, we are ambitious for our students and we need to appoint staff who can bring the right blend of flexibility, commitment, energy and vision. To be successful, you will have a strong grounding in Fine Art and appreciate the conceptual and intellectual links between all the disciplines within the department – Fine Art, Textile Design, Graphic Design and Communication and Photography. Applications are welcome from practitioners in all these disciplines.

Join us and you can expect competitive pay and an excellent pension scheme, family-friendly working and a collaborative culture where ideas take flight together. Our Cycle to Work scheme, free counselling and occupational health service, discounted gym memberships and staff wellbeing events will keep you sharp, whilst our tailored induction programme and investment in your professional development – along with the possibility of funding for additional qualifications and to even take a sabbatical – will ensure an exciting future.
