Are you a chartered librarian with a passion for ensuring that all decisions within the NHS are based on evidence? If so, the Library and Knowledge Services Development Lead for the Midlands and East of England could be the role for you.

You will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge of library and knowledge services and healthcare policy to the development of partnerships and high-quality local services in line with Knowledge for Healthcare. You will also be able to put your experience of service evaluation and risk management into practice, alongside your communication, planning and project management skills.

The Library and Knowledge Services Development Lead is a role within a new team across the Midlands and East. For the first time, the team has a pan-regional remit and will be supporting both Library and Knowledge Services and the development of Technology Enhanced Learning.

As a credible health information professional, this role provides an opportunity for you to participate in national programmes as well as supporting local services.
