Expected start date: As soon as possible
An opportunity has arisen in the University Library for a Library Support Supervisor in the Planning and Administration team.
The post holder will co-supervise a team of Library Support Assistants, working closely with a second post holder to ensure cover for core hours. They will be primarily responsible for the health and safety of all Library staff and users and for ensuring that the building is maintained to the best possible standards.
The Library places great emphasis on providing high quality customer service and is keen to employ a new member of this pivotal team, who will work closely with other sections to optimise services and can evidence enthusiasm and commitment to further improving service, through the supervision of this area.
Applicants should have excellent team-working and organisational skills, a good understanding of basic Health & Safety regulations, proven excellent interpersonal skills and evidence of their ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines. Furthermore, absolute discretion, flexibility, good oral and written communication skills and the ability to take initiative are essential for this post. Evidence of supervisory skills is required and experience of working in an HE environment would be an advantage.
For further information regarding this post, please contact either Sally Faith, Head of Library Planning & Administration ( S.M.Faith@sussex.ac.uk ) or Maria Smith, Library Planning & Administration Supervisor ( M.A.Smith@sussex.ac.uk ).
