Project Manager: Digital Learning (Discovering Sacred Texts)

Full time (part time applicants will be considered)

Fixed term until 30/9/2019

£39,000 per annum (pro rata for part time)

St Pancras, London

The Learning Team is a small and dynamic team of individuals committed to providing opportunities to access the British Library’s collection both onsite and online. Building on the success of our popular English Literature resource, Discovering Literature, our latest project will see us creating a new site showcasing the Library’s unique collection of sacred texts.

Building on your previous experience of managing the creation of online learning resources in the cultural sector, you will join the team to lead on the content creation for the site, working with the wider project team to determine content, and managing the research, consultation and build. Highly organised, with excellent project management skills, experience of working with objects of faith, or in an interfaith environment would be beneficial.

In return we offer a competitive salary and a number of excellent benefits.  Our pension scheme is one of the most valuable benefits we offer, as our staff can become members of the Alpha Pension Scheme where the Library contributes 20.9%. Another significant benefit the Library provides is the provision of a flexible working hours scheme which could allow you to work your hours flexibly over the week and to take up to 5 days flexi leave in a 3 month period. This is on top of 25 days holiday from entry and public and privilege holidays.
