  • Assist with enquiries as required
  • Take part in Rhymetime and Storytime
  • Ordering of material in the absence of senior staff
  • Support library events as required e.g. author talks and IT sessions
  • Ensure enquiry records are kept up to date

We are looking for the following key skills from potential applicants:

  • Knowledge of using Microsoft Office packages
  • Ability to use initiative and work under pressure with accuracy
  • A basic understanding of working in a library
  • Ability to manage time and workload
