Librarian & Learning Services Administrator
DGHE is the higher education division of David Game College. Established in 1974 the College is Ofsted inspected and QAA reviewed with a reputation for quality and academic excellence.
With an expanding course portfolio and growing student body we now require an enthusiastic, hard-working and experienced Librarian & Learning Services Administrator to join the DGHE team from September 2019.
The Higher Education Centre (DGHE) offers a range of Pearson BTEC HND courses alongside franchised BA (Hons) degree programmes. With approximately 700 full-time adult learners, its learning resources centre provides a Library service to both students and staff members and aims to promote and deliver a variety of academic and administrative support services. As a relatively new resource, the successful candidate will be expected to make a significant contribution to its development, organisation and growth.
During term-time the main activity will be the day-to-day running of the Library service desk. You will assist users with directional and initial information enquiries, including the use of both physical Library materials and online resources, as well as supporting students with general purpose software. You will also assist with the production of promotional and instructional guides to encourage students’ independent learning.
Outside of the academic term and/or during quiet periods you will also be required to provide a variety of other more general administrative student support services.
The working hours will normally be Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm although there may also be opportunity (optional) for additional and/or alternative working hours during some evenings and Saturdays.
The successful candidate will be degree educated and have demonstrable experience of library (preferably in higher education) or other relevant face to face customer service work. A qualification in Librarianship or Information Studies is not essential although it would be an advantage. You must have good communication and interpersonal skills and a proven ability to work methodically and accurately. You should have experience of using a computerised library database, an understanding of library cataloguing and classification systems and a good level of IT skill, along with a customer service approach to work.
