Start date: As soon as possible
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Grade 6 - £12,960 pa
Contract term: Permanent

The Brookvale Groby Learning Campus is a highly successful 11-19 educational organisation created from the integration of two schools on the same site.  Brookvale High School is an ‘outstanding’ 11-14 school and Groby Community College is a 14-19 upper school graded ‘good with outstanding features’ in its last Ofsted.  Together, the campus meets the educational needs of 1,600 students with nearly 400 at Post 16, and we became a Multi Academy trust together at the beginning of April this year.  

We have a strong ethos of valuing everyone and achieving excellence for all.  We set very high standards for our students and ourselves, we work hard, we look after each other, and we are committed to professional learning for all staff. As a consequence the motto we use on a daily basis with our young people is work hard, be kind which we feel symbolises the culture we aim to create on campus.

We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced Librarian, to be based in our vibrant and extensively used Library, within the Brookvale High School building. 

The successful candidate will work 32.5 hours per week, 8.30am - 3.30pm, Monday - Friday.

The Brookvale Groby Learning Campus Library is set within the Brookvale building and is used extensively by both staff and students.  It is a vibrant area with a welcoming feel.

Book Clubs run regularly during the week, and our students know that they can use the Library as a quiet reading area during their lunch times if they wish.  

As Librarian you will be expected to develop positive relationships with students, and to use your knowledge of children’s books to inspire and encourage them to widen their reading.  

Part of the role will include inducting classes of students in how to use the Library.  You will need to feel confident to deliver this aspect.    We also have a Learning Resource Centre on campus that is situated within the Groby College building.  It is expected that the person appointed to the Brookvale Library will work closely with staff in the LRC to develop the coherence of our library and resources provision on campus over time.

If you have a love of books and reading, alongside previous experience working with young people, then this is the role for you!  The Library will be yours to develop and nurture as a continued area for our young people to enjoy.

Full details and an application form can be found on and if you would like to visit us, then please contact Elaine Freeman - - who will arrange this for you.  The deadline for applications is 9am, Monday 18th September 2017.

We look forward to hearing from you.
