About Anglia Ruskin University:

Anglia Ruskin is a vibrant workplace and our University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally. We have ambitious plans for the future and we are determined that our students and staff will realise their full potential. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investment. With an annual turnover of over £200m, we are a major force for higher education and one of the largest universities in the East of England.


About the role:

The library provides a modern, comprehensive service in support of teaching, learning and research, blending the provision of traditional services with a flexible and innovative approach to service delivery.

We're seeking to recruit an individual at Cambridge to work in the Customer Services team of the University Library. We're offering a planned and supervised library experience. A range of developmental activities will be included in the timetable and visits to other libraries will be possible. There will also be the opportunity to participate in the learning and development offered to all library staff.

You'll support the provision of front-line library activities and have the opportunity to gain a wide range of experience as a library support adviser working in a customer focussed environment. You should possess good interpersonal skills and be IT literate with a sound knowledge of Microsoft Office. Some evening and Saturday work will be included.

The post we are seeking to fill is that of Graduate Trainee at Cambridge. This role is intended for graduates wishing to gain a range of experience of library and information work before undertaking a postgraduate qualification in librarianship or information science so those with a library qualification will not be considered for this post.


For informal enquiries please contact Judith Wells, Customer Services Manager on 01223 698312 or

Closing date: 26th May 2019.

Interviews will take place on Friday 14th June 2019.

We value diversity at Anglia Ruskin University and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
