We are seeking an enthusiastic subject librarian to join the Massey University, Wellington Campus team. This on-going, full-time position will appeal to individuals who enjoy working collaboratively to support the research, teaching and learning activities of academic staff and students. The Wellington Campus is one of three Massey University campuses, and we offer support to both distance and on-campus students. We offer a stimulating and supportive work environment, with a ‘one-library’ approach that provides opportunities to participate with the wider Library whānau in cross-campus planning and project work.

The role also includes teaching information skills, both online and in face-to-face classes, collection review and development within a subject speciality, outreach activities, and contributing to the Library’s online presence through creating and maintaining teaching resources and digital learning materials. This position will provide Library support services to staff and students from several colleges, including the College of Creative Arts. Previous experience in working with creative arts practitioners would be an advantage.

The successful candidate will be:

·  Self-driven, skilled and confident in outreach and liaison, with proven ability to proactively seek and establish collaborative relationships

· Proficient in the provision of research support services, supporting researchers in the development of scholarly profiles and monitoring research impact, as well as providing advice on research data management

·  Passionate about making a difference through research in higher education
