Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established Academic Services team in a fast-growing and innovative University. We are looking for a creative, confident, and proactive information professional, interested in developing the Academic Liaison role to meet the challenges of an increasingly digital information landscape. You will be a strong library and information management advocate within the Schools of Allied Health, Nursing and Midwifery, and Science and the Environment, encouraging staff and students to engage with and use the full range of library services, including helping them to research and make effective use of a diverse set of information sources, tools and technologies.

Enthusiastic and open to new ideas and methods of teaching and information management, you will work closely with academic colleagues to plan, develop and evaluate teaching sessions; build and manage a coherent and dynamic collection of print and electronic resources; and develop the potential around delivering information services in the University’s Hive facility. With an ongoing remit to explore opportunities for developing the profile of the library’s resources and services, as well as collaborating with professionals across the Institution, the County and beyond, this role will suit a flexible and forward-thinking individual, capable of making good decisions quickly and effectively.

The Hive, Worcester’s unique, fully integrated academic and public library facility, offers you the chance to be involved in developing services which help to realise our vision of a lifelong learner, where the University is central to the educational and cultural experience of the community. Academic Liaison Librarians play a crucial role here, working with key groups to aid the transition from school, through University, into employment, enabling individuals with critical information skills. Our ideal candidate is ready for the challenge of taking these skills beyond the traditional academic boundaries, and will always be looking for opportunities to build on the Hive’s core values, connecting people to resources, the University to the community, and inspiring people to learn.
