An Exciting Opportunity to Join a Dynamic Team!

We are looking for a committed and motivated individual to be our front line of support in the college Learning Resource Centre.  Promoting the LRC to staff and students as an effective centre for independent learning, arranging for resources to be available relevant to the curriculum, utilising the Library Management System and providing a wide range of other services.  The successful candidate should have experience of using a computerised library database, an understanding of library cataloguing and classification systems and a good level of IT skill, along with a customer service approach to work.

You will join a focused and driven team, committed to providing the highest standards of education for young people, in a challenging but supportive learning environment. This role also works alongside the Finance Team, taking student payments for such as trips and visits, so some experience of cash handling would be desirable, though not essential.

New College Bradford is a 16-19 free school which opened in September 2019, initially with 550 students, rising to 1200 by September 2021.  The college sits within the New Collaborative Learning Trust, a multi-academy trust established by New College Pontefract (an Ofsted outstanding provider).  New College Pontefract, New College Doncaster and New College Bradford work closely together, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression. We believe that students at New College Bradford should enjoy high-quality teaching and learning underpinned by a culture of high expectations, challenge and support, both for students and staff, which will enable young people in Bradford to secure high-quality qualifications to support them into employment, training and higher education.

Working in a new campus, you will join a focused and driven team at the cutting-edge of teaching and learning, with an unwavering desire to make a real difference in improving the life chances of the young people of Bradford.  New College Bradford will primarily deliver A Levels, alongside a number of Level 3 Applied General qualifications.

If you believe that you have the skills and abilities to take on this role, we’d love to hear from you.
