JOB DESCRIPTION

University of Queensland Library

Working in partnership with the academic community to provide convenient access to quality information, and to manage and provide access to UQ scholarship, the University of Queensland Library is integral to The University of Queensland’s mission to provide knowledge leadership for a better world.

UQ Library has one of the largest collections amongst Australian academic libraries and is by far the largest in Queensland.

Our collection includes:
2.7 million book titles (electronic and print)
158,000 journals (electronic and print).

This substantial collection is used extensively by UQ clients. In 2018, there were:

10.3 million journal article downloads
10.1 million ebook chapter downloads (chapter or title)
165,000 physical item loans.

Our institutional repository, UQ eSpace, houses over 363,000 items authored or co-authored by UQ affiliated researchers, including more than:

218,000 journal articles
65,000 conference papers
20,000 theses.

64,000 of these items are available open access.

Our cultural and historical collections include Australian literature, art history, architecture and more.

About This Opportunity

We are currently accepting applications for an Accessibility & Learning Support Assistant Manager within our esteemed UQ Library.

As an organisation that values diversity and inclusion, we recognise some staff and students require assistive technologies to take full advantage of our growing use of digital technologies.

Facilitating the effective use of assistive technologies, the position will work to support members of UQ, with long or short term disability, in using the full range of facilities and resources of the Library.

In addition, you will also work in partnership with other units who support staff and students with a disability to ensure that their information needs are anticipated and met. Finally, you will promote the various accessibility functions of information resources to all students and staff.

Key to the success of this role is the ability to form meaningful relationships with a range of stakeholders across the university, such as Disability Services, to ensure that students are offered seamless support to access and use assistive technologies.

This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment - you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.

Our Ideal Candidate

To be successful for this opportunity, you will hold an undergraduate degree (or teaching qualification), partnered with experience in providing support to student and staff in an educational institution.

You will bring an understanding of the contribution of libraries to the academic experience for both staff and students. It is essential that you hold an understanding of, and experience in, disability issues (including support for learning) and an understanding of accessibility guidelines when preparing and editing information for the web and training workshops. Finally, you will bring excellent IT, interpersonal, and collaboration skills.

Our ideal candidate will pride themselves on their interpersonal communication skills and ability to develop strong working relationships with a range of stakeholders, both internally and externally to the University.

You must have ongoing unrestricted work rights in Australia to apply for this opportunity.

For a full list of duties and selection criteria, please refer to the attached Position Description.

We value diversity and inclusion, and actively encourage applications from those who bring diversity to the University. Our Diversity and Inclusion webpage contains further information if you require additional support. Accessibility requirements and/or adjustments can be directed to recruitment@uq.edu.au.

What We Can Offer

This is a full-time, continuing position at HEW level 6.

The base salary will be in the range $80,784 - $86,768 plus super of up to 17%. The total package will be in the range $94,517 - $101,518 per annum.

You will be able to take advantage of UQ Sport Facilities, recreation leave loading, salary sacrificing options, on-campus childcare, discounted private health insurance, cheap parking, development programs and many other benefits.
