The University of Manchester Library is one of only five National Research Libraries and the third largest academic library in the UK. Our vast and rich collections (both print and increasingly digital) help us to deliver a world-class library and information service for the University of Manchester. While our primary objective is to meet the learning, teaching and research needs of University members, we are also fully committed to widening access to our services to individual researchers, local schools and others in the regional community.

You will work specifically to contribute to the Library’s Learning Development Team in developing and delivering academic and library skills support and course materials for University of Manchester students, with a particular focus on supporting our work creating online courses, resources and learning materials. Working closely with colleagues across the Library and University, you will incorporate the latest pedagogical research into online and blended learning and open education into the materials, courses and services the Library provides.

With significant practical experience of developing learning materials and curriculum design, you will have a strong commitment to inclusive learning and supporting a diverse group of learners. You will also possess experience of delivering face to face teaching. Your excellent organisational and communication skills will support you in working well with colleagues in the Library and across the University, and you will value and support a collaborative way of working across all that you do.
