Saint Cecilia’s is a very popular, over-subscribed school of which parents, staff, pupils and the local community are immensely proud. The school, which is conveniently located between Wimbledon and Putney, is well-respected with a proven record of high academic standards taught in a caring, supportive and distinctly Christian environment. Our well-used library received over 16,000 visits in the last academic year, and issues thousands of books. It hosts a range of classes and activities for all year groups.

We are looking for a friendly, enthusiastic, highly organised and reliable Library Assistant, to support the Librarian in the running of the School Library. The successful candidate will also need to be willing to run literacy intervention sessions to small groups and individuals.

Responsibilities include assisting with the day to day running and organisation of the School Library, managing library resources (including stocktaking, shelf tidying and updating library records) and supporting user activities. The role will include using reports and data from the online catalogue to develop the online presence and digital resources of the library under the guidance of the Librarian. Small group literacy intervention sessions will be run every day, under the direction of the Literacy Co-ordinator.

The successful candidate will need to have good communication skills, be computer literate, have a flexible attitude and be a good team player. They should also show an enthusiasm and interest in helping young people with library based activities. They will have a strong grasp of English, and be able to support pupils in developing their literacy skills.

Whilst candidates must be in sympathy with the aims of a voluntary-aided Church of England school, a Christian commitment is not essential for this post.
