Job Description

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council prides itself on being a great place to work where staff are trusted, valued and supported to make a positive contribution at work.

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 a digital world?

Working in a high achieving and customer focussed 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. Our newest spaces, the Innovation Station and Imagination Station, have allowed us to explore advancing technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting and immersive projection. 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.

We offer an excellent total reward package including a competitive salary, generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement as well as access to a number of additional employee benefits and a wide range of learning and development opportunities.
