Are you the dynamic, innovative and self-motivated Digital Services Librarian we are seeking to join our successful, forward thinking team at Stockton Library and Information Service? Do you have the drive to help us to take our service forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century?

Working in a high achieving and customer focused service you will lead and develop both the Bibliographical Services department and the Digital Team. You will be responsible for the delivery of cost effective acquisitions processes, including ordering using Electronic Data Interchange, importing and maintaining catalogue records, and you will work alongside the Reading Resources Librarian to ensure that library stock meets the requirements of the widely diverse communities across the borough.

You will be responsible for our digital services, including infrastructure, resources and digital content, and you will manage the team who provide support for the Library Management System, IT systems, web and social media presence and digital learning opportunities for members of the public and staff.

You will lead the Digital Team in developing, delivering and supporting the range of activities that these rooms have to offer.

Excellent ICT skills are essential, including experience of managing IT and Library Management systems. We are looking for someone who has substantial knowledge and experience of the public library or ICT environment and who is an experienced manager of both staff and budgets.
