Job Vacancies: Newcastle School for Boys - Senior School Librarian

Newcastle School for Boys is seeking to appoint an ambitious and suitably experienced individual to the new post of Senior School librarian. The post offers an exciting and rewarding opportunity for a candidate who has the vision and drive to set up an effective and vibrant new Senior School library at this growing independent boys’ school.
