The Assistant Librarian is responsible to the Librarian for assisting in the preparation of written and other materials for Hallé performances and events.

The post is full-time permanent based on a 36.25-hour week. Our core office hours are 09.00-17:15, from Monday to Friday, with the option to work some hours from home.

The Hallé takes equality, diversity and inclusion very seriously and welcomes applications from everyone. But simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to build an inclusive environment, where everyone can develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of teams reflecting the activities and communities they serve.

We operate an Equal Opportunities Recruitment Policy and welcome applications from all sections of the community. We would particularly welcome applications from applicants who identify as disabled, D/deaf, and/or neurodivergent who can bring their own lived experience to this role.

The Hallé will provide support to ensure that you feel comfortable stepping into the organisation, the type of which may be new or unfamiliar to you, so that you can feel your best self at work. Mentoring or training will be provided during the induction period, if required.
