Full Time, Permanent

We are seeking a motivated individual to join our high-performing Digital Engagement team and contribute to the delivery of an ambitious organisational strategy, which aims to make our intellectual heritage accessible to everyone.

As an experienced digital professional, you will support the delivery of social, email and web content using a variety of digital platforms and tools.

You will work primarily with the Social Media Manager to plan and create inventive and entertaining content, which delights and engages our social media audiences. You will also support our Email Marketing Manager and Web Editors to compile and build email campaigns, and edit and publish web content.

You will be a creative thinker with excellent writing, editing and proofreading skills, who is used to creating engaging copy under deadline pressure for a range of channels and audiences. You will be a natural organiser, able to act on your own initiative and manage your time effectively. You must be a team player with a diplomatic approach who can build strong working relationships with colleagues. You will also feel comfortable working with analytics tools as well as learning new systems, and generally take a hands-on approach to work, tackling anything you’re tasked with.

With a bold strategic vision and ambitious future plans there couldn’t be a better time to join our team.

In return, we offer a competitive salary and a number of excellent benefits.  Our pension scheme is one of the most valuable benefits we offer, as our staff can become members of the Alpha Pension Scheme where the Library contributes a minimum 26.6%. Another significant benefit the Library provides is the provision of a flexible working hours scheme which could allow you to work your hours flexibly over the week and to take up to 5 days flexi leave in a 3 month period. This is on top of 25 days holiday from entry and public and privilege holidays.
