    The Wiener Holocaust Library is the world’s oldest Holocaust archive and the home of Britain’s largest collection of published and unpublished works, documents and photographs relating to the Nazi era.


    We are seeking a proactive Reader Services Librarian to join the Collections Team. As one of the Library’s most public-facing roles, this would suit a candidate with an interest in User Experience (UX) to represent the Library and positively change the way our reading room operations support access to Britain’s foremost collection regarding the Holocaust, its causes and consequences. As we are a small organisation we are looking for someone who is a good team player willing to be involved in other projects as necessary.

    The Reader Services Librarian is responsible for all aspects of the delivery of the Library’s public services, ensuring an excellent standard of customer service. This includes responding to in-person, email and phone enquiries, staffing the Reading Room enquiry desk, providing library and archive materials to internal and external readers, managing a rota, document delivery service, and offsite storage requests. The Librarian is also responsible for managing our current periodicals subscriptions.

    Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
