Head of Library & Digital Content
Contract Type: Permanent
Start Date: Ideally, in September 2020
Job Location: Stockley Business Park, Uxbridge (Free onsite parking available)
IMG Studios is the technical heart of IMG Media Limited. Based at Stockley Park we are a hub of programme production and live distribution.
The coronavirus may have thrown live sports a curve call but, at IMG Studios, our extensive portfolio of owned and represented audio visual content has played a huge role in programme production over the last few months. We are currently looking for a new Head of Library & Digital Content to join us here at Stockley Park. Our owned and represented library is held in various formats both on and off site. Our content is largely digitised and stored on-premise under the control of a Viz One MAM. We are looking at the feasibility of cloud solutions for the future. In addition to the digital assets we store physical videotape and film assets in two locations. Besides the overall responsibility for safeguarding the commercial and heritage value of our clients and our audio visual content, there are two teams of librarians to manage. One library team works on a variety of special projects encompassing the audit, digitisation and ingest of key sporting content – some of these projects run over a number of years for client Federations represented by IMG.
This is a big role requiring proven management experience, excellent knowledge of audio visual formats and a sound understanding of digital file ingest, storage and retrieval. Negotiating with suppliers, working closely with clients at a senior level and being a strong and skilled manager will all play daily parts in this role. As important will be participating in the IMG Studios ‘Heads Of’ management team – supporting the senior team this group is crucial in overseeing the smooth day-to-day operations at the coal face of the services we provide.
PLEASE NOTE: This role will require some unsociable working hours and weekend work to meet client deadlines.
