Due to Early retirement, the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) is seeking a key senior leader to help shape the continuing transformation of public library services and the development of the library’s role as a learning organization, in alignment with the directions outlined in our current strategic plan (http://www.orl.bc.ca/about-us/policies-and-reports).

Two excluded Directors of Public Service (DPS) share the responsibility of directing the public facing programs and services of the library. Both DPS report directly to the CEO, and are a key part of the senior management team. Each DPS takes on a portfolio of focus (currently these are ‘partnerships and programs’ and ‘the customer experience’) in addition to directly supervising each branch managers of either the Southern or Northern ORL branches.  The current vacancy will be assigned the Northern branches and the ‘partnerships and programs’ portfolio to start, though assignments can change over time and through collaborative strategy developed at the senior management table.

We are seeking a candidate who has a true vision for ensuring that library service creates a positive impact on both our communities and our users, and is proven effective in sharing and realizing such a vision.  The successful candidate will thrive in a team environment and be skilled in creating meaningful collaborations with outside groups. The DPS is highly skilled in staff development using a combination of engagement, coaching, directing and evaluation techniques to ensure staff are empowered and effectively deployed.

A person of integrity and self-direction, the DPS will be open, respectful, focused and possesses strong communication, problem-solving, decision-making and organizational skills.

The successful candidate will have a Master’s Degree in Library Science (or equivalent) from an ALA accredited library science program, supplemented with a minimum of seven years’ experience in a public library, including three years in senior administrative and management.
