About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Leadership Team of the University Library. Alongside the Librarian and the Deputy Librarian you will set the vision for our division and ensure our strategic objectives are resourced, delivered, and aligned with the University’s value-based culture. It is a wonderful time to have a senior role at the University of Sussex with a new VC and Provost as well as a new University Executive Team who will lead on shaping a new University Strategy in 23/24. There will be lots of opportunities to input into all strands of this new strategy as well as a requirement for the postholder to fully engage with sector organisations such as RLUK, Sconul and LIBER.
As well as playing a full part in the leadership of the Library Division, you will be a key contact for our ambitions around Open Research and Digital Development with strong engagement in the Academic Schools (including the Sussex Humanities Lab) and with University Leadership. You will also have a close working relationship with other senior colleagues in Professional Services, in particular those in Finance, HR, Research & Enterprise and in IT Services.
The role will also be expected to make a full contribution to our substantial Library Refurbishment Project and the Library Accessibility Project (as part of the Libraries and Study Environment Programme) in their areas of responsibility as part of the Steering Group.
We are looking for an experienced, talented, and compassionate individual who will demonstrate the University values of collaboration, integrity, courage, kindness, and inclusion in their work. We need someone who understands the challenges of leading libraries and working in our sector, who is committed to finding solutions, and who understands the importance of actively celebrating our achievements with all our stakeholders, particularly library workers. Our colleagues in the library are our most important asset and we need someone who understands how crucial it is to bring them all with us. We are proud of the quality of all our services, and it is key that the postholder understands this and can deliver strong and effective engagement with all our stakeholders.
