This post offers the opportunity to be part of UWE’s thriving, vibrant and collaborative animation community.  Our highly successful BA and MA Animation programmes are in the UK’s top three courses in the 2020 Guardian League tables for Film Production and Photography.   Student work has won regional and national Royal Television Society animated film awards for many years.


Our BA Animation programme attracts highly motivated students on the basis of our excellent reputation for bespoke teaching across the range of animation processes.  The course produces industry-ready graduates, with excellent animation craft skills and the ability to develop creative and commercial ideas as well as work in production.

  • You are a motivated, passionate animator/educator with a desire to innovate, mentor and develop talent in young adults.
  • Working within the Animation team, you will contribute to managing and developing the 2D department. You are proactive in developing the latest animation applications, methods and artistic expression, to drive the department forwards.
