About this job

Job description

Lead the way in harnessing innovative technologies to spread knowledge across the world.

 

This role goes beyond the scope of its job title. Yes, you will be dealing with servers, networks, communications, databases, and IT security, but you will be doing it within the context of our new service-orientated model. You’ll lead a large IT team with a new multifunctional structure focused on delivery to the rest of the organisation while directing investment in automation technologies. As the British Library makes the transition from physical to electronic material, there has never been a better time to be in IT.

 

 

To apply, please apply online with a covering letter and a CV, detailing how your skills and experience meet our requirements.

 

Closing date: 28 September 2012.

Desired Skills and Experience

To excel in this important role, you will need strong technical operations leadership skills backed up by IT qualifications. Keen to help change the world for the better by making information accessible to all, you will have experience of building and developing service-oriented IT teams. You’ll also need strong communication, collaboration, and relationship building skills to fit with the culture of the British Library.
