Stockton Libraries and Information Services is looking for a new team member to drive forward our new Business and Intellectual Property Centre at Stockton Central Library
The BIPC will support start-ups, individuals and entrepreneurs across Tees Valley to develop the insight, skills and confidence they need to establish and grow successful businesses. As part of a national project led by the British Library, the Centre has now received funding for two years to roll out services in Stockton and to partner libraries across the Tees Valley region.
This post will sit within the Stockton Libraries and Information Services team and will work closely with the British Library to plan and deliver local marketing strategies and campaigns. The successful candidate will need to increase awareness and use of the Centre and its region-wide services ensuring that the service continues to attract diverse audiences and that the workshops, webinars, 1:1s and events are fully-booked.
The successful candidate will focus on building high level partnerships with key local stakeholders and business support organisations, as well as building relationships with users of the service. A close relationship with other support networks and teams across the Tees Valley will be vital and a hub and spoke approach will allow other library service across the region to participate.
Candidates should be educated to degree level and an appropriate marketing qualification is desirable. You must demonstrate good organisational and communication skills as well as enthusiasm and flexibility. Excellent ICT skills are necessary.
