Job Description

Corpus Christi College is looking to appoint a Graduate Trainee Librarian to assist and support the Taylor Librarian in running the College’s main lending library.  The position offers an opportunity to gain valuable experience of working in a well-used academic library and to acquire the skills necessary to pursue a career in librarianship.  The position is offered as a 1 year fixed-term contract at the outset with a view to offer a permanent position commencing after the first year with the agreement of the College and the post holder. 

The successful applicant will hold a good honours degree and would have subsequent experience of working in library and information services, preferably in an academic institution.  The ability to maintain a high level of accuracy and attention to detail is essential, as is the ability to work as part of a small team and to work to deadlines.  The ideal applicant would be someone who meets these criteria and intends to pursue a career in librarianship, beginning with an interest in continuing in the Taylor Library after the traineeship.

In return, you will receive a competitive salary, excellent benefits and conditions of employment, including a pension scheme, generous holiday entitlement, car parking and use of College facilities.
