The University of Manchester Library is one of only five National Research Libraries and the third largest academic library in the UK. Our vast and rich collections (both print and increasingly digital) help us to deliver a world-class library and information service for the University of Manchester. While our primary objective is to meet the learning, teaching and research needs of University members, we are also fully committed to widening access to our services to individual researchers, local schools and others in the regional community.

The Teaching and Learning team is looking for an enthusiastic individual to support the teaching and learning development activities of the Library. You will provide efficient administrative support for Teaching and Learning team programmes and services. You will also proactively participate as a member of the Teaching and Learning team, including involvement in projects, team meetings and communications.

You will need experience in a relevant educational environment, a clear enthusiasm for supporting students in their learning, and well-developed organisational and administrative skills. You will also possess excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to relate with students, colleagues and a wide variety of delivery partners in a polite, friendly and confident manner. This post is based in the Main Library but the Teaching and Learning Administrator will support teaching and learning on a library wide basis.

3. Inclusion – Creating an inclusive culture by recognising each other’s differences and strengths

4. Responsibility – Taking collective responsibility to achieve our shared goals

5. Support – Delighting in our success whilst supporting each other through adversity

It’s important that all colleagues share in this vision and are committed to helping create a working environment that is both rewarding and fulfilling. Please consider this before applying for this role.
