You will be educated to at least degree level or equivalent with awareness of emerging trends in scholarly communications and research support. You should be an excellent communicator with a proven ability to relate to a wide range of users, academic colleagues and external networks. You will be able to work under pressure and on your own initiative as well as being an effective team member. Experience of working with institutional or digital repositories is essential.
