Tutor – Talent Pool / Expressions of Interest 

AFTRS is Australia's Screen and Broadcast School, established to fuel and empower Australian creativity and storytelling. AFTRS is consistently rated as one of the top film schools in the world.

This talent pool may be used to fill upcoming tutor roles within the Teaching & Learning team on a casual basis. We are looking for experienced screen content and radio broadcast tutors and mentors to join our team.

At AFTRS, you’ll experience our values firsthand. Diversity is not just a buzzword for us; we believe that an inclusive workforce builds the foundation for creativity and innovation. For us, it’s about more than visible differences – it’s about the different experiences, capabilities, insights, and perspectives our people bring to work with them every day. We’re working hard to create an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work, regardless of gender, cultural identity, age, sexual preference, work style or whether you identify as having a disability.

About the role:

In our teaching, we examine, discuss, and explore the importance of moving towards telling stories that have not been told before, and representing people and communities who haven’t had a voice. We are looking for screen content and radio broadcast tutors to join the team, and in particular, we are seeking applications from practitioners with lived experience of disability, from a culturally and linguistically diverse community or from other under-represented communities to support our “nothing about us without us” ethos. 

You may be teaching remotely via Zoom from your home, teaching in a partner venue, mentoring a student, or teaching and mentoring at AFTRS. 

Working closely with Heads of Discipline, Subject Leaders and with a team of other tutors, you might find yourself teaching or mentoring students in the Bachelor of Arts Screen: Production (BASP) course, in the Graduate Diploma: Radio course, or the Master of Arts: Screen. 

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in the School as we look to create screen and broadcast content with, for and about people from diverse backgrounds and abilities. 

About you:

Ideally, you will be a Screen Content Creator or Radio Broadcaster with professional credits and experience of teaching, coaching, mentoring, or facilitating. 

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • Industry experience creating content in one or more of the above roles.
  • The ability to work independently, use initiative and prioritise tasks and meet deadlines.
  • The ability to communicate effectively, adapting the message for a diverse audience in an inclusive and accessible way.
  • Strong interpersonal skills, working collaboratively in a team.
  • Relevant tertiary qualifications, but it’s not a deal-breaker for us. If you have solid experience, we want to hear from you! 

We are seeking suitable applicants from across Australia.

Please submit your Expression of Interest including your CV, detailing your Practitioner Experience, Community Broadcast experience or Industry Experience as well as any Teacher/Facilitation Experience together with your answers to the Screening Questions.

As a creative organisation, we understand the importance of offering flexible working to support your own creativity, wellbeing, and balance. We support working from home and flexible working hours.

AFTRS is committed to building a richly diverse staff and faculty. AFTRS actively supports and appreciates workplace diversity and First Nations values, and we strongly encourage and welcome applicants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from a wide range of backgrounds and people with a disability. If you require any support or reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process, please email or call 9805 6610.

Please note that successful applicants will be required to undertake a Working with Children Check.
