Saturday Library & Information Assistant

Saturday Library & Information Assistant

2.5 hours per week every Saturday

If you haven’t visited a Library in a while you may not fully appreciate what we offer, from Lego groups and Code Clubs, to IT courses and Baby Boogie sessions, and anything and everything to do with reading for pleasure.

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 will be hard-working and receptive to change, with a wide general knowledge, an interest in books, and a digital curiosity. 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.

We are proud to offer an environment that is supportive and rewarding, working as part of a team who are passionate about the work they do to improve the lives of people in Somerset. We offer great training and development opportunities, with supportive management. As well as this, we have some fantastic employee benefits available.
