This is an exciting time for Downe House and as part of our Ten Year Vision we have just opened the Murray Centre, which is a contemporary purpose built space, centrally located at the heart of the School site. The Centre is a vibrant collaborative facility for our pupils, staff and visitors and is home to a range of excellent state of the art facilities which include seminar rooms, coffee shop, auditorium and a spacious and well-resourced library with full IT connectivity.
Working as part of a team, the Learning Resources Manager will play a key part in ensuring that our new library is at the heart of school life, and provides an engaging educational environment for pupils, staff and visitors. To be successful in the role you will need an enthusiastic and creative approach, be a strong communicator, have relevant experience in a library/learning resource/arts setting and hold a library/Information Management or teaching qualification. Maximising the effective use of technology will be vital in the Centre, so you will also need to be confident and competent with IT with a forward thinking approach.
The Centre is open from 8 am – 10 pm and flexible working hours will be required to include some evenings and weekends during term time, as part of the team rota.
In return we offer a wonderful working environment at one of the leading girls independent boarding schools in the country, generous annual leave entitlement of 8 weeks per annum plus bank holidays, ongoing CPD support, free parking on site, complimentary meals and refreshments during working hours, and a generous pension scheme.
