The University of Law (ULaw) is one of the UK's longest-established specialist providers of legal education. With an alumni network in excess of 71,000, we’ve trained more practising lawyers in the UK than anyone else.


The Role

We are looking to recruit a permanent, part-time (21 hours a week) Library Learning Advisor for our Birmingham campus who will work proactively with students and colleagues at the campus and across ULaw to provide a professional and student-centred library and study skills service. It is an exciting time to join the Library and Study Skills Service at ULaw with our subject portfolio expanding to include new areas such as psychology and computer science alongside law, business and education. 

Our team of Library Learning Advisors are based at campuses across the UK and help students and staff to develop their skills, explore our collections and make use of our learning spaces. They are the first point of contact for library support at their home campus (Birmingham) and also provide online assistance to students based at our other campuses. Along with working on our enquiry and chat services, they deliver inductions, basic workshops and one-to-one support. Some time each day is spent on admin tasks involving the Birmingham print collections.   

Please note: This is a part-time role of 21 hours a week which could be spread across the week or focused on Tuesdays to Thursdays.

The successful candidate will be a dedicated team member but will also be confident working by themselves. The on campus Birmingham library team consists of a Programme Lead Librarian and this role. Some flexibility may be required to support teaching requirements in the evenings and at weekends along with occasional travel to our other campuses.

We offer an excellent range of competitive benefits including a generous annual leave allowance, private medical scheme, contributory pension scheme, life assurance, training and qualifications, and travel loans.

On top of a competitive salary, we provide a generous annual leave entitlement of 30 days, and there’s a rewards package that includes:

  • Private Medical Scheme and Life Assurance
  • Contributory Pension Scheme
  • Training and Qualifications (including Course Sponsorship/Fee Discount)
  • Season Ticket Loans and Student Discounts

At The University of Law, you will work alongside other like-minded professionals who champion advancement, while having opportunities to develop in an environment where originality and innovation is rewarded
