Library Services Manager
Operations
Heritage & Libraries
Bridgwater
37 hours
£38,142 to £43,152
 
Somerset Libraries Service is undergoing major change as it seeks to provide a responsive and customer-focused public library service for the 21st century.  This is a time of many challenges, but also of opportunity and innovation.
 
Somerset County Council wishes to create a service which meets the needs of Somerset people and is financially sustainable, at the same time as maintaining a network of static libraries and other library provision.  Workstreams already well advanced include the introduction of self-service technology and a major service review.
 
Reporting to the Group Manager for Heritage and Libraries, you will have a key role in shaping the future of the service and in ensuring excellent standards across all service points, teams and specialised services.
 
As the County Council’s senior library professional, your key responsibilities will include:
 
·                Managing the operation of Somerset Libraries Service across its 34 static libraries and six mobile libraries.
·                Overall supervision of some 150 staff across the county and management of the service’s net revenue budget of about £5m.
·                Leading the management of service-wide projects.
·                Managing processes relating to Somerset’s lead role in the LibrariesWest Consortium, which is recognised as one of the leading library consortia in the country.
 
As a senior library professional, you will have strong leadership qualities and be committed to the educational, cultural and social values implicit in the successful delivery of a modern public library service.
 
You must have considerable experience of managing staff, operations and budgets in a large-scale public library service.  A background in partnership working with other library authorities is also highly desirable.
 
This is a key moment to join a service that is evolving rapidly.  This post offers a rare opportunity to contribute in detail to the redesign of a public library service and to the implementation of new ways of service delivery.  You will need to demonstrate that you possess the drive and commitment to play your full part in this process.
 
If you would like to find out more before applying please contact Tom Mayberry (Group Manager for Heritage and Libraries) on 01823 278805, or David Dick (Service Director) on 01823 356794.
 
Closing date: 28 May 2012 at 5.00pm Interviews: 15 June 2012
 
Application Details:
Apply on line at www.somerset.gov.uk/jobs or telephone our recruitment line 01823 356862 (24 hours). Please quote the reference number.
