Oxfordshire Libraries has a well-established and
IAML award-winning music library service based in Oxfordshire County Library
public library in the heart of the city of Oxford. We have a well resourced
Music Library comprising a lending collection of more than 18,000 items such as
printed scores, books about music of all genres, miniature scores, tutorials,
Music CDs and online databases and music streaming services. The service
delivers an excellent Music Performance Sets Service to local music groups and
regional or national choral, ensemble and orchestral groups with an average 400
requests per annum.
We are looking for a librarian to take the lead with
our public library music services and use their expertise and knowledge in
music and librarianship to maintain our high standards of delivery. You should
be a qualified librarian and have established experience of working in a
library service, such as a public library and preferably a music library.
We look forward to hearing from candidates who have
a proven record in delivering cultural events and experiences through music for
a wide range of customers especially those who don’t normally use our
libraries, by themselves or in partnerships. This is an area for development
especially postpandemic as our libraries gradually open up to in-person events.
You should have confident team and supervisory
skills to direct the library staff who will assist you in the Music Performance
Sets Service. As part of the performance library services we also have a playsets
collection which we hope to develop further

and development opportunities to support your ongoing development.
We have a generous holiday allowance which rises as

option to buy additional holiday. You will also have access to a Local Government
Pension Scheme with employer contributions of up to 19.9% of your salary; a
