Student Team - Technician

Join our Student Team for 2023/24 and gain technical skills and experience, installing exhibitions and supporting events as required.

If you are handy with a drill and hammer, have practical skills and know how to put things together then our technician role could be for you. Some knowledge of AV and being comfortable working with sound and video would be good too; but mainly we are looking for someone enthusiastic, practical and with loads of common sense.

We are looking for one or more students to support us in delivering our various creative activities. This may include helping to put up exhibitions, moving equipment or supporting our performances and events. Sometimes this will include working with technical kit such as digital projection or sound equipment. 

The ideal candidate will be comfortable using a range of tools or AV devices and have practical skills to support our activity. You don’t need to be an expert though and if necessary, we can provide training. Importantly this role is open to all students, you don’t need to be studying a creative subject, but it would help if you did have an interest in the arts.

You will be expected to be flexible in terms of when you work. It will be very casual and intermittent, depending on when events happen. However, it is good experience and will support your employability. 

Who can apply?

This role is open to all students (UG, PGT or PGR) on any course based on the East Midlands campus; it would be an advantage to have an interest in the arts but you do not need to be studying an arts-related subject.

LU Arts is committed to inclusivity and representing the student community we serve. We welcome applications from students of all backgrounds.

How much will I be paid?

You will be paid a fee of £11.68 per hour (rising to £11.89 from 01/08/323) for any hours you work for us with a minimum of two hours payment per shift. Payments are processed via the Student Ambassador team and paid monthly.
