Relief Library & Information Assistant

We have opportunities for Relief Library and Information Assistants in our Library in Frome.

Here’s what you can expect to be doing

Libraries are about books and so much more. We are offering this brilliant opportunity for you to join us as we continue to evolve as an innovative service. 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.

A few things about you

We are looking for a well-motivated person to provide a welcoming environment to our customers.

You’ll work in a team, dealing with enquiries and requests 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.
