SWRLS and CILIP South West have joined forces to produce an Online Careers Forum.

We’ve invited a range of speakers across our sector to tell us about their own library employment experience, the pathway they took (often from quite different kinds of backgrounds) We plan to host a live Q&A with our speakers so that you can put your own questions to them.

Our aim is to support individuals across our respective membership organisations with career choices and career development in the library, information and knowledge management sector.

Watch our mini-film Q&A’s from six different staff in diverse roles and across a variety of libraries. With grateful thanks to all our contributors. (click the names below to be taken to the video)
