Royal Holloway University of London is embarking on a journey of strategic change and is looking for dynamic and energetic individuals to help it achieve its ambitious goals.

An opportunity has arisen to lead and develop the newly formed Division of Library, Learning Support and Culture [LLSC]. The post holder will be expected to provide leadership to divisional staff and to excite the academic community of learners, researchers and staff with what LLSC can offer and provide for them.

Located in the new Emily Wilding Davison building the LLSC team forms the operational heartbeat of the University, and is at the centre of this transformation.  It is pivotal to the institution’s success and to delivering on its commitment to its students.

The new Director of Library Services, Learning Support and Culture will lead a modern and user-oriented function that meets the rapidly evolving needs of both students and staff and will exploit technological innovation to enhance its services. The Director will have the opportunity to maximise the benefits of the Library’s new home at the heart of the campus and to contribute to our strategic ambitions.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record of achievement and leadership in a library or related function, experience of effective management of teams and resources, and be able to develop productive relationships and work collaboratively. He/she will represent Royal Holloway nationally and internationally and have a strong commitment to delivering an excellent service. The Director will have an ambitious vision of the ways in which the Library, archives, special collections and art collections can support and develop the university’s mission.

Reporting to Robert Hall, the Director of Academic Services, and working closely with academic and other colleagues across the College, this role is a highly strategic position for an ambitious and energetic individual who is looking to achieve innovative change.

The closing date for applications is 11:59pm GMT on Monday 10th December 2018.

The College is actively promoting diversity in its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly people from ethnic minority backgrounds and those with disabilities.
