Job Vacancy: Production Coordinator

Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) celebrated its 30th anniversary in September 2021.

Since its inception, GWL has grown from an unfunded, grassroots group totally reliant on volunteers into a renowned, unique and multi-award winning organisation, now employing 23 staff and supporting around 80 volunteers a year.

As the UK’s sole Accredited Museum dedicated to women’s history, and a Recognised Collection of National Significance, we also house an extensive lending Library and deliver innovative programmes of public events, exhibitions and learning opportunities that aim to increase the knowledge and understanding of women’s history, lives, and achievements in all their complexity and diversity.

We are seeking a Production Coordinator to join our dynamic team. This is one of two part-time Production Coordinator posts – the other Production Coordinator is Laura Dolan, who works 21 hours per week. You can find out more about our staff team here

Frequently Asked Questions

Please carefully read all the information provided on this page and in the recruitment documents. We hope that the additional information below will be of help to potential applicants.

Will you accept my CV?

No, please don’t send us your CV, or attach it to your application form. This post requires specific skills, knowledge and experience, as detailed in the Job Description and Person Specification. The application form asks you to answer particular questions that are designed to assess how you match these requirements.

Can I submit my form later than the closing time and date?

No, we will start to prepare the applications for shortlisting straight away and need to stick to the closing time and date to be fair to everyone applying. The closing date for applications for this post is 12 noon on 1st February 2022.

I can’t make the interview date, can I be interviewed at an alternative time?

We have only one day set aside to interview shortlisted candidates for each of the posts, and so it’s not possible to make alternative arrangements for interviews. Interviews for this post will take place on 17th February 2022.

Will interviews be in person or online?

With continued uncertainty around the Omicron Covid-19 variant, we are unsure about whether restrictions will be in place at the time of the interviews that might prevent in-person meetings. Meeting shortlisted candidates in person is our preference, and interviews will be held at Glasgow Women’s Library if possible. However, we also have the ability to conduct interviews by Zoom. The details regarding arrangements will be confirmed nearer the time.

Do you have other job opportunities available?

We are currently also recruiting two posts as part of our HLF funded Three Decades of Changing Minds project – we are seeking a Project Coordinator to lead the project, and a Project Archivist to augment our current Collections Team to appraise, catalogue, digitise and make accessible GWL’s organisational records.
