There are a huge variety of roles available in the library and information recruitment sections of a business, with unique challenges requiring specific sets of skills. Some of these job titles include:

Whilst each of these positions requires a specific set of skills and competencies, there are some underlying traits that everyone in library and information recruitment relies on. The first of these is organisation, with library employees, in particular, using organisation skills to keep all of the information they use in the right place to reduce the risk of any confusion in the process. Research skills are another necessity for library and information positions, as completing thorough research ensures that your company has and uses all of the right information for each relevant case.
In addition to hiring for skills, Glen Recruitment emphasises finding members of staff with the right background and workplace culture. Finding an employee with all of the abilities necessary is important, but a poor fit with the way your existing staff work together can lead to issues. A recruitment team which pays attention to your exact needs will help to solve this problem.
