We are always looking for better ways of doing things. How can we make the most of our resources? Create exciting spaces that our residents want to spend time in? These are just some of the things you could be looking at when you join us. You’re going to have a big impact on what we do, so you’ll be trusted to take ownership of your work.

Put simply, a career with us means having everything you need to build on your skills. To build better relationships. To build even better communities.

What's it like working here...

This is an exciting time to join Bracknell Forest Libraries as we are rolling out Open+ technology to extend opening hours, rather like 24-hour gyms, in all 9 Libraries. You will be joining a team of 36 staff plus volunteers, committed to delivering our core offers and wide-ranging events’ programme, providing an excellent service to all of our customers.

We will support you to...

  • Provide a high quality service to the public via all service points within Bracknell Forest Borough Council, answering information enquiries in person, by telephone, and digitally, and to support customers in the use of ICT / printing facilities.
  • Assist customers to issue, return and renew items of stock using the self-service kiosks.
  • Promote areas of stock by creating and updating new monthly displays.
  • Assist with the organisation and running of activities and events for all age groups to generate library income, including the sale of goods and services as required.
  • Support volunteers allocated to branches, assisting with their training and helping them to feel part of the team.

The benefits you will experience are...

  • Regular opportunities for development with internal and external training courses.
  • An inclusive and social working environment.
  • A great location in the regenerated town centre, with excellent travel links.
  • Internal sports and social club opportunities.
  • Discounted leisure centre and gym membership.
  • Supermarket discount.
  • An interest free loan for a rail season ticket.
  • Access to childcare vouchers.

What we're looking for...

We are looking for a confident and enthusiastic person, with a passion for customer care and with strong ICT skills, who can make a positive contribution to the team. You will also show determination and resilience to achieve results.
