Chair of Trustees

Chair of Trustees - Hertfordshire Libraries
Hertford, Hertfordshire
3 days per month

Are you passionate about the cultural sector and arts?

Hertfordshire County Council is immensely proud of its library service. Our ‘Inspiring Libraries’ Strategy, adopted in 2014, has enabled us to invest in developing and modernising Hertfordshire Libraries in the most challenging times for local government, and we want to ensure that the service continues to thrive into the future.

We now want to establish a Hertfordshire Libraries Public Service Mutual as an independent organisation, with charitable status. Our intention is to undertake a public procurement exercise for the delivery of library services in Hertfordshire during 2019, with the successful bidder winning a contract to deliver and develop the service for the next ten years. The Public Service Mutual will submit a bid for this contract, based on the principles of ‘Inspiring Libraries’.

We are seeking an experienced, committed and dynamic Chair with business acumen, to shape and lead the future for Hertfordshire Libraries.
