The University of Brighton is seeking an Information Adviser to support learning and teaching at St Peters House Library. Based at our vibrant City Campus, your excellent customer service skills will be key to building strong working relationships with the campus academics, and ensuring that library resources and services meet the needs of the diverse university community. 

You will take an active role in developing the library collection in line with the Collection Development and Management Policy to ensure that students have access to relevant and credible information resources. You will manage a proportion of the resources budget, and – alongside the Assistant Information Advisers – you will promote the use of discovery services to academics and students to ensure that resources are organised and used to their full potential. 

To be effective in this role, you will need:

  • a professional qualification in library or information science (or equivalent experience) 
  • to demonstrate people management skills 
  • Excellent organisational skills and the ability to prioritise conflicting demands  

This is a full-time post which includes some evening and weekend working for which appropriate enhancements will be paid. In return, the university offers a wide range of benefits including a generous pension scheme, annual leave starting at 25 days a year plus additional leave over the Christmas period. Because we are under-represented in Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff, we particularly encourage applicants from the BAME communities. We do, however, welcome applicants from all groups. Job sharers are also welcome to apply.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact the St Peters House Library Manager, Jenny Maidment, [email protected] , or the previous post-holder, Kim Donovan, [email protected] .

Further details:

The University is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment for all staff regardless of age, disability, family or caring responsibilities, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief (including non-belief), sex and sexual orientation. We embrace equality and diversity in our working, learning, research and teaching environment and are committed to maintaining a supportive and inclusive community. We particularly encourage applicants from Minority Ethnic backgrounds because the University is under-represented by Minority Ethnic staff.

For the vast majority of our roles, we operate an agile working system with time split between working on campus and at the employee’s home. It is the University’s expectation that home working will take place within the UK.
