If you haven’t visited a Library in a while you may not fully appreciate what we offer, from Lego groups and Code Clubs, to IT courses and Family History advice, and anything and everything to do with reading for pleasure. Our ideal candidate is a reading enthusiast who is more likely to organise a Harry Potter party and tweet about it than say ‘Shhh’.   Libraries are about books and so much more. We’re offering this brilliant opportunity for you to join us as we continue to innovate. From day one you’ll be working in a customer centred environment, a busy community hub that serves a diverse range of people, partners and organisations.

About you

We are looking for well-motivated people to provide a welcoming environment to our customers. You will be hard-working and receptive to change, with a wide general knowledge, an interest in books, and a digital curiosity. You’ll work in a team, dealing with enquiries and requests, planning and delivering interactive activities, and promoting our services. You’ll be encouraging the love of reading through a range of promotional activities. Confidence in the use of digital technology is essential; as you will be helping customers to use our equipment and their own.

We are proud to offer an environment that is supportive and rewarding, working as part of a team who are passionate about the work they do. We offer great training and development opportunities, with supportive management. We offer an excellent benefits package to all our employees including:

  • A Local Government Pension Scheme.
  • A Flexible Benefits Scheme via salary sacrifice to obtain a cycle for work, and a range of benefits and discounts including staff discounts in gyms
  • Generous annual leave
  • Employee Assistance and support offering a variety of employee wellbeing services to support a healthy work/life balance and lifestyle.
  • Optional pension enhancement through our Additional Voluntary Contribution scheme.

This post is exempt under the provisions of the Rehabilitations of Offenders Act (Exceptions) Order 1975 and is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
