Based: Tooting Library


22,300.52 + benefits


Tooting Library is looking a new Senior Library Assistant working for 36 hours per week, for this highly-regarded library, operated by GLL in the London Borough of Wandsworth. This large Town Centre library has an excellent reputation for user and community engagement among the local population.


With community at the heart of everything we do, as a Senior Library Assistant, you'll ensure that every visitor to the Library is welcomed into a clean, safe and attractive environment with useful facilities that keep them wanting to return. As a key frontline member of staff, you'll adapt to, and acknowledge, the diversity of our visitors and what they aim to get out of their library visit as well as helping them to discover our wide range of resources and services. Your passion for libraries and community engagement will be apparent as you help people do everything from discovering new authors to tracking their ancestry from our records and even helping them find their ideal job using our IT systems.


You'll ideally come from a library background, but it'll be your enthusiasm for helping others and devotion to customer care that makes you really stand out. Naturally good with people, you'll be able to put people of all ages and backgrounds at ease whilst helping to promote our services. Organised, efficient and thriving on variety, you'll be just as competent using IT and library management systems as you are running Storytimes and rhyme times for our younger audience. It goes without saying that you'll need excellent numeracy, literacy and communication skills, alongside administrative skills, knowledge of safeguarding children and vulnerable adults and the processes involved with the security and operation of a public building. As a senior member of the team you will be responsible for supervising the work of others and have cashing and locking up responsibilities.


In return, we offer a range of benefits including pension schemes, childcare vouchers and ongoing opportunities for training and development. If this sounds like you, apply now 


Closing date: 6th June 2022
