Are you customer focussed and keen to support services to world class researchers?

Do you have great communications skills, and attention to detail?

Will you make a positive contribution to our team?

The Research Support Team supports the research activities of our staff and students, face-to-face and online. The team promotes and supports open access publishing across the University. This involves administering the University's publications database and institutional open access repositories. The team also runs training workshops and provides support via the research pages on the Library website.

We're looking for a professional and proactive individual to join our Research Support Team, committed to excellent customer service and providing support to researchers with their Open Access publications. You'll need excellent communications and IT skills and be familiar with different types of academic/research digital content. We provide a wide range of services to academic staff engaged in research which means we have to be flexible and responsive, reacting positively to new initiatives, and balancing our workloads to meet service standards.

We're committed to working with colleagues across the Library and more widely, sharing best practice and providing a seamless service. The team are normally located in the Edward Boyle Library on the University of Leeds campus but are currently working from home.
