British Library

We’re more than a Library

Maybe you’re an expert in research, reference, curation or preservation. Perhaps you’re an IT professional, marketing specialist or skilled in digital/audio. Or it could just be that human resources, finance, business development, administration or estates and facilities is your thing. Whatever your background or ambition, the British Library could have more to offer you in terms of a career than you think

Join us, and you’ll soon discover that we’re more than a Library. We are a place where a truly diverse team of 1,600 enjoys an open, creative and collaborative environment and a great range of benefits while working for one of the UK’s greatest public assets.

To ensure we fulfill our mission to make our intellectual heritage accessible to everyone, we have six distinct purposes – custodianship, research, business, culture, learning and international. We believe that together, these purposes will help us achieve our vision of making the Library the most open, creative and innovative institution of its kind in the world.

  • Custodianship – we build, curate and preserve the UK’s national collection of published, written and digital content.
  • Research – we support and stimulate research of all kinds.
  • Business – we help businesses to innovate and grow.
  • Culture – we engage everyone with memorable cultural experiences.
  • Learning – we inspire young people and learners of all ages.
  • International – we work with partners around the world to advance knowledge and understanding.

However, we can only make that vision a reality with the help of great people. Our staff are the key to our success. It’s their expertise, dedication and resilience that make the Library so valued by our users.

Diversity & Inclusion

The British Library aims to be an inclusive organisation that values difference and the benefits it brings. In practice, this means treating people as individuals by regularly asking questions and listening, as well as supporting them when their circumstances change.

We’re committed to developing and harnessing the range of talents of our people, and are delighted to have a staff base that shares their expertise with us. We understand that differences exist, not only in race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, and religion/belief, but also in social and educational background, nationality, marital status and family or care responsibilities – and that list is not exhaustive. We also recognise that each of these individual factors bring invaluable different perspectives that together can only help improve the services we offer.
