The University of Manchester Library is one of only five National Research Libraries and the third largest academic library in the UK. Our vast and rich collections (both print and digital) help us to deliver a world class library and information service for the University of Manchester. We sit at the heart of the University experience for both learning and research and are fully committed to widening access to our expertise, collections and services to individual researchers, local schools, and others in the community.
A key role of the Library is supporting students and staff at Manchester and in the wider community to access, analyse and explore its collections, resources and expertise. The Teaching, Learning and Students (TLS) team leads the way on Library teaching activity and student support and is the home of the award winning My Learning Essentials and the My Research Essentials, Specialist Library Support services and Widening Access programmes. The TLS team is part of the Directorate for Faculty and Student Partnerships and works closely with colleagues in Customer Services and Engagement, in addition to teaching staff throughout the Library and University.
We are currently looking for a Teaching Learning and Students Coordinator to be part of our collaborative team. This post will focus on teaching and student support, with an emphasis on academic and information literacy skills. The role also requires excellent organisational skills, to support administrative activities around our programmes and services. Other duties will include participation in the quality assurance processes of the team’s training materials and working closely with the Library’s Student Team in the delivery of services and support.
This role is predominantly campus based, however as the University of Manchester supports hybrid working there is some flexibility for remote working.
