Supervisor, Technical Services North Vancouver , BC


Come join our team at Capilano University Library! We are seeking a library technician to join us as Supervisor, Technical Services at our North Vancouver Campus.

About the Position

The Supervisor, Technical Services oversees day-to-day operations and provides leadership and coordination of duties for staff in the Technical Services Department (five full-time staff). In this role, you will prioritize and assign work, schedule departmental workflows (including coordinating time off requests and work schedules), and oversee the area’s quality assurance. You will train and coach Technical Services staff, participate in selection committees, and support the University Librarian in goal setting and performance management for your direct reports.

Both strong supervisory and technical capacity are required for this role. We are seeking a candidate with supervisory or other applicable leadership experience, strong financial and numerical literacy (for oversight of library acquisitions), and skills in applying cataloguing standards. Knowledge of technical services workflows and ILS applications, particularly those which relate to acquisitions and cataloguing processes, are central to this role.

If you are excited about the opportunity to lead our Technical Services team, we want to hear from you.

Please review the Job Specification for a full description of the required skills, education, and experience. If you do not meet all of the requirements exactly, but have commensurate experience or education, please explain in your cover letter. We welcome interested applicants from diverse experience and educational backgrounds.
