Salary: £50,132 - £58,089

Company: Creative Media Labs - University of York

Closing Date: March 4, 2019

Creative Media Labs

Creative Media Labs (CML) is a newly funded R&D partnership, bringing together academia and industry to develop innovative approaches to immersive and interactive storytelling across film, TV, games and other creative digital media. CML is led by the University of York, with its core partners, Screen Yorkshire and the British Film Institute. We are seeking a highly experienced, personable and pro-active Programme Manager to work alongside the members of CML’s Executive Board and to lead the Delivery Team. You will formally be employed in the University’s Department of Theatre, Film and Television, but you will report to the CML Director. You will be based either on the University’s East Campus or in York city centre.

The Role

This is a highly responsible role working alongside the Director and other members of the Executive Board to provide strategic management and leadership. As the senior operational manager, you will provide the Director with high-level assistance in all aspects of the setting-up, management and successful delivery of this new and complex partnership. You will be an effective, inspiring and dynamic leader able to work successfully with a range of stakeholders across the creative industries (from the BBC, BT and Sony to Yorkshire-based companies such as Warp, Revolution Software and Duck Soup), the HEI sector, policy bodies, local authorities and funders. You will therefore play a key role in maintaining and developing the partnership.

You will have a governance role, sitting on both the Executive Board and the Partnership Steering Board, and help to develop and deliver the partnership strategy. You will be responsible for the day-to-day organisation and delivery of the partnership, and will manage a small delivery team, including an R&D Projects Manager and an Administrator. You will also manage the partnership’s finances and budgeting, its stakeholder relations, its communications work and its risk strategy. You will work with the team to ensure that CML is a well-organised, highly collaborative, professional and enjoyable place to work.
