Toorak College, located in Mt Eliza on the stunning Mornington Peninsula, is seeking a dynamic Art Assistant to join its vibrant and successful Visual Arts & Technology faculty in 2023. The faculty offers a wide range of VCE subjects and offerings and we are looking for someone to assist teachers and support students to realise their creative abilities.

This diverse role will involve the provision of pragmatic administrative day-to-day operational support to facilitate effective outcomes in a fast-paced team environment. In addition, the management of art materials and supplies, including the maintenance and operation of relevant art production equipment will mean no day is the same. With an eye for detail, the successful candidate will also need to possess a creative flair to assist in the setup, showcasing and celebration of students’ final works.

Excitingly, this position is offered as a permanent, part time role commencing at the beginning of the 2023 school year working 26 hours per week, term time only. Whilst a spread of hours across the week is desired, flexibility exists regarding working days and can be discussed further with shortlisted candidates.

  • Creative ability and knowledge of a wide range of art mediums and practices and the ability to apply these skills in an educational environment.
  • Ability to use initiative, prioritise time and tasks efficiently in a fast-paced work environment.
