CHEP provides support for Academic staff across the University of Southampton. The Centre is located within Southampton’s Faculty of Social Sciences but serves the whole University. CHEP was created to provide comprehensive world-leading professional development for all staff and doctoral researchers at all stages of their career.  We are one of only a few institutions in which the support for all academic activity (Education, Research and Knowledge Exchange & Enterprise (KEE)) is provided from the same central team and we are in the process of expanding the team. We play a pivotal role in supporting the realisation of the University of Southampton’s Strategy and our set up means we are ideally suited to support the Triple Helix approach of our strategy.  

The role 

The purpose of this role is to provide professional expertise and skill in the design, creation and maintenance of digital and multimedia resources for academic professional development across education, research and knowledge exchange & enterprise (KEE).   You will also be required to update CHEP’s internal and external digital platforms.

About you

This is an exciting opportunity for a skilled and creative digital developer to join our friendly and supportive team and use your knowledge to design, build and maintain digital resources for academic professional development across education, research and knowledge exchange & enterprise (KEE).

You will have experience of working in a professional environment and be able to demonstrate use of design, multimedia/authoring tools and content management platforms (such as WordPress, SharePoint, Articulate Storyline Adobe Creative Cloud) as well as knowledge in digital resource production processes.  Experience in using audio and video production platforms would be desirable as well as an understanding of accessibility standards and their relevance to digital resources.  

You must be willing to learn and be a team player.   As the CHEP Team are still working in a hybrid fashion you must be able to plan your own workload and be responsible for managing your time.  There is the option to work on campus or from home but you will be required to come into the office for regular in-person meetings. 

 Informal enquiries can be made at any time to either the Communications Officer (Yvette Melia), or another member of the CHEP team. Please contact or   

 What we can offer you

Since CHEP promotes academic professional learning for every member of University staff, we aim to role model good practice by providing staff within our team with a range of professional development opportunities.  

Committed to supporting our staff, we are open to a flexible working approach.  With an understanding that there is not always a need to be on campus, we are open to a hybrid approach. We will consider applicants who wish to work flexibly and those who have taken a career break. Proud to be a founding signatory of the Athena Swan gender equality charter, we hold an institutional Silver Award. 

As well as additional benefits that will make your life easier, such as a generous holiday allowance and additional University closure days, we will support your long-term future with access to the University of Southampton Retirement Fund (USRF), subsidised health and fitness facilities and a range of discounts.   

As a university we aim to create an inclusive environment that attracts, supports and retains the best students and staff from diverse backgrounds and experiences from across the world. We are proactive in fostering a culture of inclusion, respect and equality of opportunity. We believe that we can only truly meet our objectives if we are reflective of society, so we are passionate about creating a working environment in which you are free to bring your whole self to work.
