Arden is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Librarian to enthuse students with a lifelong love of learning and literature.
You will take responsibility for integrating the library service into the life of the school and ensuring it reflects the educational aims and objectives of the school. We will look to you to inspire a love of literacy by promoting the library and its resources within the library, the school and externally. You will oversee budgets, arrange classification and cataloguing, maintain library resources and encourage pupils’ participation in children’s literary events and author visits. Important will be the ability to deliver services that are responsive to the fast changing worlds of communications and information technology.
