Kingston College is one of the highest performing Colleges in London, rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in June 2016. The College has reinvigorated its focus on improving the student experience, raising student aspirations and delivering consistently good and outstanding teaching, learning and assessment. As a major provider of further, higher and adult education to over 10,000 students, our staff have quality at the heart of everything they do.
We are now looking to appoint a Resources Advisor (Content and Collections Development) to join our Quality and Learning Services Division.
This is an excellent opportunity to gain further experience of library and information work, working as part of the Learning Resources Centre Team which delivers a range of services to support learning and professional practice and provides a comprehensive collection of e-resources and print resources that meet curriculum requirements.
It will be your responsibility to co-ordinate the resource request service for curriculum staff and the development of resource collections so that LRC resource provision remains highly relevant and accessible. Your tasks will include placing book and e-book orders on supplier ordering systems and working with curriculum staff to select and embed content, such as e-books, in the virtual learning environment.
In order to be successful in this role, candidates must hold a Level 4 qualification (in any discipline) and have previous experience of working in a library/learning resources environment. With experience of working in a busy customer focused environment, giving you the ability to deliver a high level of customer service, you will have excellent interpersonal skills and strong IT skills including familiarity with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and email.
Capable of working efficiently without supervision, you will be comfortable working under pressure and manage time effectively in order to meet deadlines. A willingness and enthusiasm to undertake further training on internal systems, including the library management system and the virtual learning environment is important and we would like you to either hold or be willing to work towards (self-funded) a recognised Library qualification.
