Two posts are available based in the Academic Engagement and Learning Development Team. One post is permanent full time, one post is permanent 0.8 FTE. Please specify which post you are interested in, or you can be considered for both.

We have one full time permanent, and one part time permanent position available for an Academic Engagement and Learning Developer. For both positions we are looking for a motivated individual who is passionate about supporting the learning and outcomes of students. The appointed candidates will be creative and solution led and will be able to take an active role in their own development and the development of the services offered in the Library and Archive service and in Academic Skills Support.

The Academic Engagement and Learning Developers play a vital role in student success and in supporting both students and academics in academic skills through teaching, liaison, and advocacy. All Academic Engagement and Learning Developers in the team have dedicated subject areas and a professional services department area with which they are linked. One role will be responsible for supporting subjects in the Westminster Business School, and the other role supports subjects in the college of liberal arts and sciences – previous experience in these areas is not necessary but an interest is helpful. The dedicated professional services department area will be assigned once the post holder has been appointed. Examples of some of the professional services alignments include Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Innovation, Customer Services, Disability Learning Services.

The post holders will work in a busy team of Librarians, Learning Developers, and Liaison Assistants within the library and archive services. The role involves liaison and advocacy; supporting learning through skills sessions, workshops and appointments; resource development; project work and other initiatives.

The Academic Engagement and Learning Development team is currently working remotely but we are transitioning to onsite working. The roles will have the flexibility to work at home some of the time dependent on the needs of the service.

Working patterns and days are flexible and negotiable and will be discussed at interview. We also welcome applications for job shares or for reduced hours than currently offered in these posts. The posts should start as soon as possible dependent on the commitments of the selected candidate.
