Are you confident working with metadata? Do you have strong interpersonal skills?  Are you a team leader as well as a team player, able to make a positive contribution to metadata management in this large HE library?

The Access & Acquisitions Team acquires information resources for the Library – hard copy books and journals, and e-resources such as e-books, e-journals and large online packages.

This role focuses on the management of the processes around resource description, metadata and the discoverability of resources.

You’ll have responsibility for managing work across a diverse range of areas, ensuring content is accurately represented for discovery and delivering project outcomes to deadlines. You’ll work closely with other sections in Access & Acquisitions and other teams across the Library. You’ll respond to enquiries and liaise with suppliers and providers to solve problems and develop solutions.  You’ll manage Metadata Specialists and their work on project tasks, plan strategically and coordinate workloads with the Access & Acquisitions Assistant Manager: Metadata Operations.
