The St. Peters House Library has an opportunity for someone committed to providing a robust library service for our diverse community at the University’s Grand Parade campus as well as members of the public in the centre of Brighton.

As the Assistant Information Adviser you will teach classes of students to be information literate; answer queries from our users about our collection of books, journals, and objects; manage an important collection including extensive exhibition catalogues and artists books; communicate to our public via University and Social Media channels; and take responsibility for the library when scheduled to be the senior member of staff on duty.

A professional qualification in library and information work is essential and you will have a good working knowledge and understanding of print and digital information sources useful to the community of scholars and artists in a University setting.

You will work as part of a team to contribute to projects managed by the Library Manager and the Information Adviser; subject expertise is not a requirement however an understanding of the scholarly discourses and artistic practices is helpful; the campus is home to three schools: the School of Art, School of Humanities, and School of Media.

You will deliver customer-focused services to students and academics. You can manifest collegial relationships with the people who work with you at every level.

The post includes regular evenings and some weekend working for which appropriate enhancements will be paid.
