The School of Jewellery is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated and experienced lecturer to join our award-winning BA Jewellery and Object course team. This practical degree is an internationally-respected jewellery design course that encourages experimentation with materials, processes and techniques as well as fostering creative thinking. This successful course has contributed to the institute successfully retaining the School Trophy at the national Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship and Design Awards for the last three successive years and winning other prestigious prizes including the New Designers Best Stand Award 2019 at London’s leading national graduate exhibition this summer.
Opportunities exist to contribute to a wider expanding portfolio of courses and work alongside approximately 25 FTE academic staff, including two professors, two associate professors and two invited visiting professors in what is an amazing, thriving community of researcher, teachers and expert practitioners.

The Birmingham School of Jewellery is the largest in Europe with seven undergraduate and two post-graduate courses across Jewellery and Silversmithing, Gemmology, Horology, Business and related Management subjects. The School is a part of the highly successful Faculty of Art Design and Media, now ranked in the top 151 - 200 institutions in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2020. The faculty includes the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire among our other prestigious schools.

Established in 1890, the School now operates over three sites in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter; the original Vittoria Street School, a floor within the Assay Office Moreton Street and our soon to be opened St Pauls Square post-graduate jewellery research centre. Together these sites offer unrivalled facilities, including its own specialist library, Technical Hub, research cluster, gallery and analysis equipment with a world-class process and machine workshop supported by half a dozen expert technicians.
