Job Description

Dulwich Prep London is seeking to appoint a creative and organised individual to take an active lead in managing, developing and promoting the School library, in addition to its day to day administration.

The successful candidate will work closely with teachers from all sections of the School to ensure the library supports the delivery of the curriculum and to help pupils make effective use of the library’s resources. They will also organise school-wide reading events, support library lessons, manage the library budget and contribute to the caring, purposeful and stimulating environment of our School.

We are looking for someone who loves reading and can use that passion to create and keep readers in a world with many other distractions.

This role is to work full days for 36 weeks per year (to include all Term Time weeks).  However, there may be some flexibility around working days and hours, which can be discussed at interview.
