North Somerset Libraries are looking for someone motivated and organised to join their Operations Team, undertaking a broad range of routine operational tasks in support of the library service.  Experience of driving and of practical maintenance tasks is essential.

You will work as part of a team to offer support to North Somerset’s network of libraries.  Tasks are undertaken both in public and in back-office situations therefore good communication and team working skills are essential.
