Job description

Why you'll love this role:

You’ll see students grow in knowledge, skills and confidence and know you’ve played a part in their success as they progress through college and onto university or work.

You’ll get to inspire and nurture the next generation of talent in the region's thriving games industry.

Whether it's Games Engines like Unreal and Unity, 3D Modelling, Immersive Technologies, eSports, or Virtual Production, you'll be immersed in cutting-edge topics that define the future of gaming.

You'll inspire your students, motivating, coaching, and empowering them through their learning journey from developing inspiring lesson plans to providing constructive feedback and creating opportunities for them to engage with the games sector.

You’ll be part of a team of like-minded professionals who are just as passionate about delivering top quality teaching as you are.

A background in the games, graphics, or media industry is a plus, but if you're fresh out of university and bursting with passion, we want to hear from you.

Experience in one or more of the following:

Games Engines, 3D Modelling, Media Production, VR/AR, VFX, UX/UI, eSports.

Most importantly, we're seeking someone who's as passionate about teaching as they are about gaming. Your enthusiasm and dedication to helping students thrive are what set you apart.
