    The University of Oxford's many libraries contain the largest

    privileges, the Taylor Institution Library and the Sackler

    The Head of Preservation and Collection Care will be a key
    member of Senior Management, taking part in strategic-decision
    making and leading a large team of skilled professional and
    technical staff. The postholder will be expected to continue the
    development of an overall preservation and conservation strategy
    for Oxford University Libraries, for all types and formats of
    material, and to play a central role in securing and deploying
    the resources needed in order to deliver this strategy.

    Substantial experience of library work at a senior management
    level will be expected together with significant knowledge and
    experience of the technical aspects of preservation and
    conservation.  Proven leadership skills and sympathy with and
