York St John is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic York and there’s never been a more exciting time to join us.

Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary courses have helped make us the fastest growing University in the U.K over the past two years.

Now we’re building on that achievement, developing a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world and a more prosperous region.

We’re putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, and here at York St John University it is recognised that alongside our academics the technical team play an integral part in supporting learning and research.

As a Stonewall Top 100 employer and holder the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice, our strength lies in the supportive, inclusive network that exists within our team: renowned for our friendly, progressive environment, we will nurture your potential so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

All of this takes place at the heart of beautiful York, recently named by the Sunday Times as the best UK city to grow up in because of the quality of education, culture and community spirit that we form part of!

As part of our expansion we are recruiting for a Games Design Technical Demonstrator with specialist skills in 3D modeling software packages, intermediate experience of Unity and/or Unreal; Photoshop skills would also be desirable. We are looking for an exceptional individual with a background in Games Design.

As part of this role, you will inspire students and staff to be hands on with the resources, encouraging and supporting the development of cross disciplinary exchanges. You will show a passion for passing on skills and thrive on learning, investigating, and supporting research alongside the students and other colleagues. You will show a willingness to work collaboratively with colleagues within the Technical Team, across the Academic Schools and beyond.

If you would like to shape the story of a 175 year old institution with a fantastic future, we would love to hear from you.
