Boston Spa Renewed is a capital redevelopment programme for the British Library’s site in West Yorkshire. It seeks to transform the Boston Spa site providing the infrastructure to safeguard the national collection into the middle of the century. This ground-breaking £95m government funded programme will deliver a 'state of the art' automated high density storage repository alongside plans to refurbish existing buildings to provide improved staff accommodation. We are now seeking a Programme Support Officer to provide the necessary functions to support the wider team to deliver the programme to time, cost and quality parameters across a number of design, construction, and business change and transformation projects.
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 26.6% (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.
