Library and Research Administrator

Library and Research Administrator
Employer: Science Museum - London
Salary: £19,000 - £19,500 per annum + benefits
Location: London

Would you like to work in one for the most beautiful new libraries in Britain? Are you enthusiastic about delivering high quality customer services in a national museum library?

The inspiring Dana Research Centre and Library opened in late 2015 and holds a small collection covering the history and biography of science, technology and medicine. But this is less than 1% of the collection! The Library also provides access to our world-class archives and printed collections transported from the Museum's store at Wroughton, near Swindon.

You will be part of a small team delivering services to library visitors including curators developing new exhibitions. You will answer enquiries, issue and return books and help readers to use catalogues and electronic resources.

You will play a pivotal role in providing access to these collections, liaising with colleagues in London and Wroughton to satisfy customer requirements and ensure that the service is maintained to high standards. You will invigilate readers using rare material, ensuring it is securely issued and returned without damage.

You will be customer focussed and have previous experience working in a Museum, Library or closely associated organisation in an administrative role. In addition, you'll possess excellent attention to detail and problem-solving skills.

You will be offered excellent benefits, including 25 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays, a contributory pension scheme, BUPA medical and dental care, an annual season ticket loan and numerous staff discounts whilst developing your career in a world class museum group.
