You would be responsible for the day-to-day running of the Bodleian Education Library ensuring the delivery of effective and efficient library services that meet the changing needs of library users.

You would use your IT skills and creativity to deliver innovative services. This includes responsibility for the timely provision of online reading lists as well as promoting the library via social media and the library website.

You would be expected to work independently and flexibly whilst managing a small team and a range of projects. The role includes undertaking a wide variety of administrative and professional duties whilst proactively upholding the Education Library’s strong commitment to providing outstanding customer service at all times.

Only applications received online before midday (BST) on 24 October 2016 can be considered. You will be required to upload a supporting evidence form as part of your online application. The supporting evidence form should list each of the essential and desirable selection criteria, as listed in the further particulars, and you should explain how you meet each one.
