Head Librarian

St George’s the English International School, Cologne, Germany.

St George’s School seeks a well-qualified librarian to lead our library team, to begin August, 2018.

The School

Serving the international community in Cologne for almost 30 years, St George’s School combines an enriching curriculum with family orientated care. The school has grown from small beginnings into a thriving community of over 750 pupils, aged from 2-18 and representing more than 40 nationalities. 

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school, and we offer the IB Diploma in our Sixth form. 

One of a group of four schools located across Germany, St George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group. 

The Location

Located on a new, purpose built campus on the outskirts of Cologne, St George’s School enjoys direct transport links to the city centre, as well as to the greater area of Cologne-Bonn. 

Germany’s fourth largest city, Cologne is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated in the heart of Europe, Cologne offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and cultural discovery. 

Cologne-Bonn airport is located only 20km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and a high speed rail service connects Cologne to London, via Brussels.

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a qualified and experienced profession to manage the activities of our learning resource centre. 

The successful applicant will be a dynamic individual with experience of promoting a passion for inquiry and effective research skills. Well-developed organisational and communication skills are a prerequisite. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for learning and inquiry, which will inspire our pupils. 

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to direct the development of this important area of the school. 

It is our vision that the library space not only be a repository for books, but a dynamic centre of learning activity. We intend to develop it into a place for both individual reading, research and reflection, as well as a space for collaboration and group discovery. We are looking for the right individual who can support us in achieving this vision and bringing this space to life.
