Screen Scotland is looking for a Film Education Officer to contribute and support the promotion and development of moving image education and creative film learning in a variety of settings across Scotland. Screen Scotland is the public agency supporting the development of the screen sector in Scotland, from education through skills and talent development, to production, distribution and exhibition.

You will play an active role in promoting the importance of moving image education in Scotland and support the delivery of projects and initiatives which help progress the creative film learning in educational settings in Scotland. You will be responsible for gathering data and research intelligence relating to moving image education, and you will need to maintain a national and international overview of your area. Additionally, you will assess and make recommendations on funding applications relating to your specialism.

Our ideal candidate will have experience of having worked in an educational setting and will bring an in-depth knowledge of moving image culture to the role – particularly around filmmaking for beginners. You will have a strong awareness of educational policy and practices, and proven project management experience.

Strong interpersonal skills and team working, the ability to develop and establish partnerships both at home and abroad, and a commitment to our core values are all essential. An understanding of the screen sector in Scotland, and of the relevant public and third sector agencies involved in learning in Scotland, would be advantageous, as would teaching experience in school or early years settings.

The closing date for applications is Monday 30 March at 12 noon. Interviews will be held on Thursday 9 April 2020. If you are selected for an interview you will be expected to be available on this date.
