Required for September 2022, a highly motivated and innovative librarian.

TMWS is looking to appoint a librarian to join our busy team.
• Do you enjoy working in a busy and vibrant environment?
• Do you have excellent interpersonal skills?
• Do you have a love of reading and enjoy working with children?
• If you are excited by your answers to the above questions then you may be the right candidate to join #TeamTMWS

We are a small school, proud of our traditional rural heritage, yet ambitious for the future of all our students. Our size is a real strength as it enables students and their families to work closely with the teaching and support staff at the school, building positive working relationships. We believe that students achieve best in a supportive and positive environment – and that is what you will find in our school.

We are looking to appoint an inspirational and committed colleague who is passionate about reading and has a keen interest in – and broad knowledge of – children’s and young adults’ fiction. You will promote literacy across the whole school using current and emerging technologies and will ensure the library is a fully inclusive facility for the school community.

The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in the further development of the library and student resource centre.

The position requires frequent use of ICT skills so the candidate must be confident with using computers and office software. The role will also include supporting departments with reprographics.

Previous experience of working in a library is desirable, but not essential. Preferably, candidates would have experience working with secondary aged students and conducting literacy interventions.

TMWS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
