You will have the ability to promote the library service and provide excellent customer service to a wide range of diverse library users.  You will have strong customer service and communication skills.  Library work experience, although desirable, is not essential. 

The role requires:

  • good level of community awareness with experience of working with diverse community.

  • ability to confidently provide digital support to library users.
  • ability to oversee the library events calendar and work with new and existing partners to develop additional community focused activities.
