We are seeking a Resource Description Assistant to join the English Cataloguing team, based within the Collections and Resource Description department of the Bodleian Libraries.

You will join a small team responsible for the cataloguing of English language items across a variety of library materials. The bibliographic work consists of copy and original cataloguing as well as enhancing existing records to facilitate reader access to our collections. In addition, you will undertake a range of tasks relating to the distribution of materials throughout the Libraries. 

You will have experience of working with structured data and enjoy methodical, precise work requiring a high level of attention to detail. A flexible approach is necessary, as is the ability to work both independently and co-operatively with colleagues. Good written and spoken communication skills are essential. This role involves lifting, shelving and moving books as well as pushing trolleys and using kick-stools.

Previous experience of bibliographic cataloguing will be an advantage although full training will be given to the right candidate. 

This is a full-time, permanent position.

The University offers staff a reward package that is equitable, fair and reflects our standing as a world leading University. As a member of staff at Oxford you can enjoy a wide range of benefits, along with excellent learning and development opportunities in a stimulating and attractive environment.

Our staff and students come from all over the world, and we proudly promote a friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through diverse groups and champions, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from periods of extended absence, for example shared parental leave.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement as part of your online application. Your supporting statement should list each of the essential and desirable selection criteria, as listed in the job description, and explain how you meet each one. CV’s will not be considered.  

Only applications received online before 12:00 midday (GMT/BST) on Wednesday 4th January 2023 can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place on 25th January 2023.
