Digital Services Assistant Waimakariri Libraries

The Waimakariri Libraries are vibrant hubs centred in the rapidly growing communities of Rangiora, Kaiapoi and Oxford. Modern library facilities, quality customer experience and a powerful web presence are key to the delivery of effective library services.


The primary functions of this role include developing and maintaining the Libraries' website and creative content and working with other library staff to meet the information, reading and recreational needs of customers. Assistance with the administration and monitoring of buildings, equipment and systems is also required.


New technologies mean that library staff work alongside customers rather than across a desk. We are looking for enthusiastic candidates with the ability to support customers in their use of technologies and for the delivery of digital literacy programmes for children and adults. An affinity for working with the teen to young adult (13-24 year) age group would be of particular advantage.


This role would suit a team player who can work without close supervision and is keen to assist other staff. It is also an opportunity for new graduates or those interested in undertaking further studies.


Essential characteristics include:

  • Experience in developing and maintaining websites, creative content and communications media
  • Skills and ability to support a diverse range of customers in their use of information technologies
  • Confidence and initiative to provide excellent customer service to the public
  • Aptitude for day-to-day administration of building management systems and equipment

 A position description is available on the Council's website.
