We require an enthusiastic, committed person to join a team that is central to the core of learning at the School.
You must enjoy working with young people and have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
The Gryphon Learning Resource Centre (LRC) is physically and literally at the heart of the school. It is enormously popular and busy throughout the day as it serves over 1660 students and over 200 staff. It is a bright, attractive, welcoming and inclusive environment. The LRC is used by nursery aged students alongside A level students preparing for University entrance. Supportive relationships with all students and staff are key to maintaining an outstanding provision for all. The ability to assist students in advanced research, promoting reading and literacy at all levels as well as managing this organisation is quite a challenge…but enormously rewarding. We believe in the importance of accessing leading edge e-learning information sources as well as maintaining books and hard resources.
The hours of work will be between 10.00 am to 2.00 pm, Monday to Friday.
The successful candidate will:
• be an organised person to cope with the demands in this busy environment
• have good computer skills
• be able to work under pressure
• have some previous knowledge of libraries or an interest in reading
