Description

                     

Full Time, Permanent,  

The British Library's International Team is seeking an International Office Co-ordinator to work with our partners across the world and coordinate the day-to-day activities in our International Office.

This role will act as a focal point of co-ordination for all International Office run activities, such as professional and diplomatic visits, tours, private views and events. Crucial to this role will be your ability to connect with people, to think on your feet and to work with a variety of people both internally at the British Library and with international partners. We are looking for a proactive, highly organised and personable candidate, with great administrative skills.


Over the past 7 years, the British Library’s International Office has worked with partners around the world to advance knowledge and mutual understanding in a spirit of mutually beneficial reciprocity. This work includes multiple collaborations, projects and relationships and we are looking for an individual with a positive and proactive approach to help us coordinate these activities.
You will report to the Manager of the International Office and will be part of a small team of people who are passionate about international relationships, cultural heritage and can develop and implement impactful international projects.

We are particularly keen to hear from people with a good experience of communicating across different cultures and strong understanding of diversity.

As one of the world’s great libraries, our duty is to preserve the nation’s intellectual memory for the  future and make it available to all for research, inspiration and enjoyment. At present, we have well over 170 million items, in most known languages, with three million new items added every year. We have manuscripts, maps, newspapers, magazines, prints and drawings, music scores, and patents. We make our collections and programmes available to all. We operate the world’s largest document delivery service providing millions of items a year to customers all over the world. What matters to us is that we preserve the national memory and enable knowledge to be created both now and in the future by anyone, anywhere.

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 of 20.6% (this may be higher dependant on grade). 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.
