Job Description

This post offers the opportunity to make your mark in a challenging role at the heart of the knowledge and information provision within the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust (SaTH). The shared Library Service provides services to Trust staff and volunteers, university students and healthcare staff across Shropshire supporting evidence-based patient care.

Our Libraries are based on two sites at the Princess Royal and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospitals, but we also have the strategic and operational management of the library services provided to our University and NHS partners and SLAs with our local healthcare partners. We work particularly closely with our academic partners (Keele and Staffordshire Universities) to the extent that we even have a shared building and library service with an excellent combined team of Chartered Librarians and support staff.

About the Person

To be successful in your application, you will need a first degree in librarianship or information science or a Postgraduate qualification in librarianship or information science. You will also be a Chartered CILIP member and will be able to demonstrate significant staff and change management experience. The role requires strategic vision, excellent people leadership and communication skills as well as the ability to provide a high quality, proactive service, capable of meeting the requirements of the Trust and its partners and the challenges of the rapidly changing NHS information environment.

The post holder will be required to work cross-site but will primarily be based at the Shrewsbury site. Previous NHS experience is not essential as it’s more important that we find the right person.
