We currently have two vacancies to join our Faculty Librarian team as part of Library and Learning Services at the University of Surrey.

 Covering our Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences the successful candidates will join our team working with the relevant Faculty to create strong partnerships and relationships between the Faculty and Library and Learning Services. You will be the key point of contact for Library resources and collections supporting academics with teaching and research activities, as well as providing support and training for research staff and PGRs. Working closely with colleagues in our Content Team and Open Research you will play a key role in the Library’s offering at the University working with departments around the institution.

As this role is the main point of liaison, we are looking for applications from those who have experience working in academic libraries and in managing collections. An understanding of the current Higher Education landscape for information provision is also essential. Knowledge or experience of subjects within the Faculty would be an advantage.

We are looking for people who can demonstrate excellent communication skills with all levels of staff, and who enjoy collaborating with different teams to deliver high quality and user-centred services to our university community. We are committed to diversity and inclusivity and would expect the post holders to bring their ideas and contribute to our activities in this area. You will have strong digital skills and have a commitment to your on-going development.

Library and Learning Services is currently working in a blended way, with a mix of working on our campus in Guildford and remotely. We would be open to applicants who'd be interested in working flexibly and would urge any one interested in this to get in touch. 

Please indicate in your cover letter if you are interested in the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences or if you are interested being considered for both posts.

Interviews are scheduled to be held on w/c 6th January 2022.
