The School is at the forefront of University-wide curriculum innovation through industry partnerships. The Digital and Creative ?Industry Collaboration Zone? supports partnerships and projects with the creative industries across the region and nationally, which inform the curriculum, enrich the student experience and enhance employment opportunities. Furthermore, major investment in Internationalisation has enabled us to establish a number of key partnerships in East and South East Asia and North America, these include franchised delivery, progression opportunities and CPD contracts with major organisations, providing significant opportunities for colleagues across the School. This is an exciting time to join the School as we continue to develop and align our teaching, research and engagement activities to the changing environment both nationally and internationally. BA (Hons) Fashion Design at University of Salford is a successful and growing programme, ranked fourth in the 2019 Guardian League Table. The programme has strong connections with industry and students regularly work on industry led projects. In addition, the programme is successful in winning high-profile competitions: last academic year all three finalists in the Topshop competition were from our Fashion Design programme and one of our Fashion Design students has won the Levi jeans award for the past two years. Individual creativity is encouraged and nurtured throughout the course leading to confident and professional designers who understand the process, from concept to final product. The programme aims to create flexible, resourceful fashion designers with well-developed transferable and interpersonal skills. It is important that the programme provides a broad-based experience, concentrating on fashion, and develops not just high levels of analytical skills, critical judgement and the ability to learn independently, but also helps students acquire technical skills and the understanding necessary for the effective realisation of creative fashion concepts. It is imperative that fashion students become multi-skilled and professional people, able to adapt themselves to the specific needs of society and to the fulfilment of their own creativity. The successful candidate will be teaching and assessing on creative and contextual study modules as well as giving pastoral guidance and support to students. The role requires someone with knowledge and understanding of the fast-changing landscape of the global contemporary fashion design industry and with excellent fashion design, technical and digital skills across a range of 2D and 3D areas.
