The successful candidate may or may not have libraries experience specifically; you may have significant experience in a customer services or community-focused role at a senior management level. You will also have extensive experience working with Library Management Systems and LIANZA standards, or significant experience with systems of a similar complexity. Proven strategic and financial management capabilities are a must, and outstanding communication skills, energy and drive goes without saying!
