Head of Venue Services

Applications for this vacancy closed on 24 January 2013 at 12:00PM
We are seeking a dynamic individual to lead the Historic Venues section of the
Bodleian Library’s Enterprises department. The section manages the outward-
facing interactions with visitors and the general public, including guided
tours offered to those visiting the historic Old Bodleian Library. The section
also derives an income stream from corporate hospitality, weddings, and film
hire, balancing commercial interests with the normal functioning of a great
research library, including requirements for the venues for University
ceremonies and for Library functions. The opening of the new Weston Library in
2014/15 offers exciting possibilities for public engagement and corporate
hire, and the postholder will make a significant contribution to the planning
and implementation of these activities in the new building.

You will have experience of the successful management of an historic site or
venue, and have an excellent track record in income generation, staff
management, organisation and leadership. You will have a sound grasp of
financial operations, including e-commerce, and be good at communicating and
negotiating at all levels. You will be committed to very high quality customer
service.

Due to the nature of this post, candidates will be required to undertake a
Disclosure Scotland check as well as a financial background check. The
possession of a criminal record or poor financial background will not
necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are
judged individually according to the nature of the role and information
provided.

Only applications received before midday on 24 January 2013 can be considered.
Interviews will be held on 1 February 2013. You will be required to upload a
supporting statement as part of your online application.
