About ICAEW Library

ICAEW is a world leading professional membership organisation that promotes, develops, and supports over 195,300 chartered accountants and students worldwide. We provide qualifications and professional development, share our knowledge, insight, and technical expertise, and protect the quality and integrity of the accountancy and finance profession. 

Founded in 1871, the ICAEW Library has one of the world’s largest collections of accountancy material. Our extensive collection of current and historic material covers a range of subjects, focusing on accounting, auditing, taxation and finance. Together, the resources and Library enquiry service support ICAEW members and the wider profession.  

Overall purpose

This role, reporting to the Resources Development Manager, is to provide a range of administrative support to the Library’s acquisitions and collection functions. 

Main responsibilities

The main tasks of this varied role include ordering, receiving and claiming all printed material, including serials, and processing all order payments, as well as carrying out some book processing, looseleafing and shelving. 

The successful candidate should have excellent organisational skills, show attention to detail, be good at multi-tasking and be an enthusiastic problem solver. The role may suit a recent graduate or someone with experience in a similar role. IT literacy and familiarity with library management systems is essential, but training will be given on the system used by the Library (SIRSI Symphony). 

The team currently work with a mix of home and on site working. The post holder would be expected to attend site for a minimum of 2 days, and there is flexibility on what days are worked on site. Travel to our off-site archive in Milton Keynes will be required.
