Join us, and you’ll be part of a hard-working team giving local people a Theatre and Library that’s the very best they can be.
Although you will be based at one library, you must be able to work flexibly at other libraries if required. The post works on a two-week timetable, including early morning and evening shifts, you will also be expected to work Saturdays.
What we can offer you:
