We are pleased to advertise an exciting opportunity for a full-time Grade 4 Academic Support Librarian within the latest development of UAL Library Services.

As a member of the Library Services team, you will contribute to the development of high-quality and student-focused library services which support the academic activities of the University.

You will line manage a small team and oversee the daily operational running of the library, which includes local frontline services, working in a functional team.

You will support specified courses/programmes of study, participating in course committees. You will establish constructive working relationships with course teams, and promote access to resources, collections and services through effective academic liaison.

You will assist in the provision of enquiry services and develop learning materials which encourage the use of resources and services.

You will answer enquiries in person and on-line, via our live chat service, ASK and assist users with general directional and initial information enquiries, including the use of the library catalogue and electronic information resources. You will supervise and contribute to library shelving plus related activities, demonstrating an understanding of manual handling guidelines which will be required when lifting heavy items.

The role, based at the Lime Grove site will be working 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday, 7 hours per day. Normal working hours will be between 9.00am to 6.00pm but there can be a requirement to work any time during our 8.30am to 8.30pm core hours.
