Project Consultant for BIC's Metadata Map Project

BIC (Book Industry Communication Ltd) is looking to recruit a part time consultant to deliver its flagship "Metadata Map" project.

The purpose of this project is to collaboratively map the book industry's metadata supply chain from the point of metadata creation (with the publisher as the start point) through to the end recipient(s) of the metadata - in this instance consumers. In exploring how best to arrive at a Metadata Map, the project will need to consider the fluidity of the metadata supply chain, and should allow for changes and updates to material/information. It is intended that this Metadata Map will, as a "living document" help resolve issues and identify gaps or grey areas within the metadata supply chain. It will also shed light on where the metadata goes, what happens to it and who uses it.

Applicants should be able to begin working with BIC no later than the fourth calendar quarter of 2017 and should be able to demonstrate the skills and experience appropriate for delivering such a key project for BIC.

The closing date for applications is: Saturday 30th September 2017.

Details of the role profile can be found here.

The Metadata Map Project Brief can be found here.

Applicants should submit their CV to BIC's Executive Director, Karina Luke at Karina@bic.org.uk with a covering letter that addresses the requirements detailed in the role profile explaining why they are interested in and suitable for the position.

This role is offered on a part time consultancy only basis.

Strictly no agencies.
