We are seeking a Principal Library Assistant to join a team responsible for acquisitions of the Bodleian Libraries’ materials, based within the Collections and Resource Description Department of the Bodleian Libraries.

You will deal with both print and electronic resources orders and incoming deliveries acquired by purchase and donation from all over the world for the Central Bodleian (Acquisitions Services), and for all other individual libraries with the Bodleian Libraries Groups.

You will have experience of working with structured and financial data and enjoy methodical precise work requiring high level of attention to detail.

You will have good written and spoken communication skills, as well as excellent numeracy skills.

A flexible approach is necessary, as is the ability to work both independently and co-operatively with colleagues.

This role involves lifting and moving books as well as pushing trolleys and using kick-stools.

This is a part time, permanent post, working 19 hours per week.

You will be required to upload your 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.

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.

Only applications received online before 12:00 midday (GMT/BST) on Monday 13 February 2023 can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place on Friday 24 February 2023.
