The best Temporary Jobs for Librarians and Information Professionals


Number One for LIS recruitment

CILIP (the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) provides an unmatched “package” of recruitment services to enable employers to find just the right staff to fill their vacancies. 

It is possible to advertise vacancies here on Lisjobnet.com or as part of an on/offline combined package which has an unsurpassed reach into the LIS community.  CILIP Update, CILIP's highly-regarded membership magazine, goes out to our 13,000 members, is published monthly and carries print Recruitment advertising.  These ads are also replicated online, here on Lisjobnet.com, as part of the package. 

The website is seen not just by CILIP members, but by non-members as well. According to latest figures from Google Analytics, 18,655 unique users visited the website in January 2015, 40% of which are CILIP members, 60% are not. In addition, an e-alert goes out to 10,000 registered subscribers each week, we Tweet the vacancy and post it on LinkedIn.  This ensures maximum exposure to qualified job-seekers.

Costs for this combination of print/online adverts normally start at £910 plus VAT for 1/8th page ad.  All print adverts are in colour (at no extra charge). 

It is possible to advertise online only for just £655+VAT for a permanent post.

The CILIP Graduate Training Opportunities scheme has been offering employers the chance to recruit good, motivated graduates for over forty years and continues to be a vital resource for young and mature students, career changers who have had no or little library / information experience.  Contracts are normally for one year and allow the graduate to gain the experience they need to enrol on a CILIP accredited course.  There is more information the Graduate Training scheme here.

Temporary positions (posts up to a maximum of 12 months) or Part-time posts (where the actual salary is less than £13,000), can be advertised for just £425+VAT.
