Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

The Role

Term time only, 36 hours per week,
To start as soon as possible

As one of the most successful and over-subscribed, non-selective schools in South West London with Music and Mathematics as a specialism, we are a truly inclusive and dynamic place to work.

We are looking for a professional, friendly, enthusiastic, highly organised and inspiring Librarian, to manage the Library, ensuring it is an effective place for study for pupils, students and staff. The successful candidate will work with all users to ensure the Library continues to be a focal point for learning, through managing and acquiring stock, supervising user activities and delivering study skill sessions, along with developing a love of learning for all pupils/students through organising cultural events and literacy initiatives. Some flexibility of working hours will be agreed with other members of staff to enable the library to be accessible before and after school.

Responsibilities include the day-to-day running and organisation of the Library, managing library resources (both physical and digital), developing the online library management system, overseeing the work of the Assistant Librarian and supporting user activities.

As a vibrant school of just over 1,000 pupils with a thriving academic Sixth Form, Saint Cecilia’s is also a caring Christian community, and together with a close-knit team of dedicated teaching and support staff, has achieved excellent academic success. Whilst candidates must be in sympathy with the aims of a Church of England School, a Christian commitment is not essential.

Located close to Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club, Saint Cecilia’s is well connected to central London and the West End, as well as the tranquil Surrey countryside, by exceptional transport links. The school lies within the Inner London Weighting area, which adds a significant increase to salary.

The nearest underground station is Southfields (District line – Zone 3 and less than a five-minute walk), which is only five minutes from Wimbledon station and 16 minutes from Earl’s Court. The area is well served by numerous bus connections to Clapham Junction and Richmond.

Please note the deadline is 9.00am on 06 June 2022

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
