Assistant Librarian (Systems) Kenya Job

The Kenya School of Law is a Postgraduate Training Institution run under the auspices of the Kenya School of Law Act, No. 26 of the Laws of Kenya.

The core mandate of the Kenya School of Law is inter alia to train for legal professional development and in particular to train lawyers for entry into the legal profession as Advocates of the High Court of Kenya.

For over 40 years the School has discharged this mandate under the leadership of the office of the Attorney General and the Ministry of Justice National Cohesion and Constitutional Affairs.

From 2006, however, the School became a Semi-Autonomous Government Agency (SAGA) with an expanded mandate and reviewed terms of service for its staff.In order to
effectively meet these expanded functions the School wishes to recruit full time high calibre personnel who will join the existing strong team of staff to help it realize its vision of being the preferred centre of excellence in legal education and training in the Eastern Africa region and beyond.

We are looking for independent, strategic actors who are in good health, are ICT literate, customer oriented, and love the thrills of leading change.
