Do you have the vision and skills to lead the strategic development of library collections in all formats? Are you excited by the prospect of contributing to the leadership and ongoing development of library services that have a reputation for excellence and innovation?

Christchurch City Libraries is a network of 20 physical libraries and a digital library, including our recently opened Tūranga, the flagship new Central Library for Christchurch.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced senior library leader to take the helm of Library Content Services. In this role you will be responsible for the design and implementation of effective library policies for collection development, preservation, copyright and rights management. You will also be responsible for the development of digital content, including the digitisation programme, for all libraries, and will oversee bindery and courier services for the network of libraries.

To be successful in this role, you will have proven skills and experience in the following:

  • Planning and delivering collection services in a larger scale library and information environment
  • Relationship building and successful collaboration through partnerships
  • Business and financial management acumen
  • Developing and implementing policies and operational business plans
  • Fostering a team culture of achievement and continuous learning

Christchurch is a vibrant destination in transition and there is no other city like it in the world. After recovering from the Canterbury earthquakes, the city is being rebuilt from scratch. The new, emerging city is modern, greener and more creative than ever before. Along with an affordable lifestyle, Christchurch is a great city to get outdoors and explore with the beach, the Port Hills and Banks Peninsula close by and the Southern Alps are just a short journey away.

If you're looking for a role that allows you to demonstrate your energy and commitment to libraries, join us and make a difference in people's lives.

An appropriate remuneration package will be negotiated with the successful applicant.
