Job description

About Us

The King’s community is dedicated to the service of society. King’s Strategic Vision 2029 sets out our vision for the future, shaped around five priority areas: educate to inspire and improve; research to inform and innovate; serve to shape and transform; a civic university at the heart of London; and an international community that services the world. Our ambitious Education Strategy sets out the actions that we must take to transform how we teach, how and where our students learn and how we support them during their time with us.

King’s has set out a compelling vision to ‘make the world a better place’ in its strategy for 2029. Libraries & Collections have created a plan, Library Evolution, which will enable us to transform our services, our resources and our spaces as we move towards 2029. The purpose of the Collections Design & Delivery team within Education & Learning, is to build rich and diverse collections that enhance the learning and research experiences of individuals from across the King’s community.

Libraries & Collections is part of the wider Students & Education Directorate, a collection of wide-ranging professional services in place to support King’s students and their education. As a directorate we manage the student lifecycle from application to graduation and beyond, to ensure a coherent and seamless student experience and effective administrative processes, working closely with King’s faculties to do so.

About the Role

Senior Library Assistants support education and research at King’s by undertaking a range of activities that contribute to the delivery of an innovative and sustainable Libraries & Collections service. They cover a variety of service delivery roles and carry out specialised administrative and processing tasks. Through providing in-depth help, training and guidance they support all users of Libraries & Collections’ services, referring specialist queries onto colleagues as appropriate. By actively engaging with a culture of continuous improvement and change they enable Library Evolution. They are responsible for the supervision of Library Assistants and other colleagues, providing training and support and role-modelling a positive and flexible approach to work.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates looking to work with library collections to enhance teaching and learning, and who wish to utilise their skills and expertise in communication, problem solving and IT. This is an opportunity to grow your skills in delivering reading lists and acquisition services.

You will be required to participate in frontline services as required, including contributing towards a rota for evening and weekend working.

We encourage applications from candidates who have experience from both within and outside of the Higher Education sector where they can demonstrate the skills needed to succeed in this role.
