About the role

Do you want to work in a fast paced environment with lots of variety? We’re seeking an individual who will flourish and thrive in a busy, sometimes pressured and often complex environment as Library Advisors based within the David Wilson Library.

You will proactively ensure the smooth day to day operation and delivery of high quality, user-centred library services that support and enhance students’ experience and the University’s learning, teaching and research endeavour.

About you

As the ideal applicant, you will have substantial experience of working in a customer-focused service. You will enjoy working directly with our users, dealing with a wide variety of enquiries and resolving issues, including the day to day challenges of technology, student behaviour, or difficult questions.

You will share our VITAL values, including valuing people, working together and demonstrating inclusivity. 

You will also be able to build excellent relationships by engaging with our users through outreach activities and social media.

You will be comfortable leading a team and have proven team working skills with the ability to plan ahead, organise, take responsibility and act with initiative.

We look forward to receiving your application.
