Financial Analyst -- Marriott Library at the University of Utah 

Post date: March 2,  2023

The Marriott Library offers many different services, contributes to the entire university community and is very important to the overall mission of the University of Utah.  Academic libraries have changed a lot over the years and continue to change to meet the needs of their patrons and the Marriott Library is no exception.  There are a lot of very exciting things happening as we maintain our heritage and history but also as we continue to move farther into the digital age, which presents some unique challenges and opportunities.  The Finance Specialist position gives you the chance to be a part of all this and help move things forward by supporting these changes from a finance perspective.  This position will be part of the Financial Management team and will work closely with the Finance Director by assisting with preparing financial reports and analysis, both monthly and annually, to be used by library management in making strategic decisions, conduct special projects, reconcile accounts and maintain financial documentation.  Assists library departments with support and guidance regarding financial issues as needed.  This position will also fulfill the vital role of daily accounting and processing duties. 

The Marriott Library also serves as the financial agent for the Utah Academic Library Consortium.  This position will assist with preparing reports to be used by the UALC council, prepare and distribute invoices to members institutions and prepare and submit deposits.

This position is currently designed as a hybrid of on-campus and remote work. Specific telecommuting arrangements will be based on the needs of the position and authorized at the discretion of the supervisor. 

We seek qualified applicants who also bring perspectives and experiences that will enrich and strengthen our organization. We especially invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path. All candidates should be prepared to discuss how they see themselves contributing to the University’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. The library serves an increasingly diverse constituency of patrons, and our employees, services, collections, and policies should honor and reflect this diversity. We are therefore interested in identifying and interviewing candidates who have experience with underserved or marginalized communities and communities of color and who are committed to advancing our mission to provide equitable access to information resources.
