The school is looking to appoint a Librarian working five days per week (full time is 40 hours per week, excluding a lunch break) in St Philip’s Library at the heart of the school, from September 2018, or sooner if possible.

Ideally, the successful candidate might have experience of school teaching, possibly being a retired teacher or someone who has taken a break from teaching. Duties include managing book stock through Eclipse, a library book management system, and assisting pupils in the selection of books. St Philip’s Library is used by sixth form pupils throughout the day for private study which means supervision of sixth form pupils and working closely with the staff responsible for them are an important part of the Librarian's duties.
