Applications for this vacancy closed on 25 October 2019 at 12:00PM
The English Faculty Library (EFL) is seeking to appoint two motivated and
reliable individuals to provide essential support in term-time to the rest of
the small team in this busy lending library; the EFL currently serves over
2,000 readers from the English Faculty and from other University departments.



You will be responsible for sorting and shelving returned books, ensuring that
the collection is kept tidy and well-maintained, assisting readers with
locating books on the open shelves, and other equivalent duties within the
grading of the post. Numeracy, attention to detail, a strong customer-service
approach, and the ability to lift and carry books and to use ladders and
kickstools are essential. Familiarity with the subject area and previous
experience of working in academic libraries would be an advantage.



This is a permanent variable hours (paid as claimed) post. It is anticipated
that you will work approximately 5 hours per week in term-time only (weeks
0-9). The working pattern is anticipated to be an hour a day, with one
Shelving Assistant working from approximately 9am and the other from
approximately 4pm.



This role requires lifting and carrying boxes of library materials, pushing
trolleys, climbing ladders and kick-stools in order to access some of the
library’s bookshelves and to re-shelve materials.



You will be required to upload your 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. CVs alone will not be considered.

can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 14
November 2019.
