The University of London

The University of London is one of the oldest and largest universities in the UK – and the most diverse. Established by Royal Charter in 1836, the University is recognised globally as a world leader in Higher Education. We are a federal institution consisting of 18 self-governing Colleges of outstanding reputation and a number of acclaimed central academic bodies. The University of London offers almost every subject covered in any University curriculum, delivering huge flexibility and choice to its students.

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS)

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) is a postgraduate research institute with a core of over 130 researchers, research students and legal information professionals, but which draws its primary membership from academic researchers and postgraduate research students from other institutions throughout the UK, and which also provides services to researchers in the wider legal community.

The Library is a national and international resource for legal research and has over 300,000 volumes the majority of which are housed at the Institute site at Russell Square in Bloomsbury.

The Role

The Institute of Advanced Legal Studies Library is seeking to appoint two full time Graduate Trainee Library Assistant posts on a one-year fixed term contract. These training posts are designed for graduates carrying out one year of work experience and training prior to attending library school. 

This is an opportunity to work in one of Europe's great legal research libraries, based within the University of London, with a mission to provide national research library and information services in law.

Each trainee is initially based in either the Information Resources team or the Academic Services teams.  After six months, trainees swop over to gain full experience of working in all library teams, including time spent in our Digital Services team.  This enables them to develop an overall understanding of the links between the different teams and how the library fits together as a whole. The trainees are entirely integrated into the smooth running of the Library. They undertake essential duties in the Information Resources and Academic Services teams as well as working on our busy Issue & Enquiry Desk. An extensive staff development programme is detailed elsewhere and monitoring and feedback from that programme takes place.

For a full role profile, please refer to the job description below.
