Library Assistant - Customer Services

Contact Details

We are looking for an energetic person with customer service experience and strong IT and interpersonal skills to fill a permanent part-time library assistant position with the Waimakariri Libraries.

The skills for supporting a diverse range of people in their use of technologies; enthusiasm for maintaining the library's equipment and systems; and the ability to assist in delivering library, information and digital literacy programmes for children and adults; are desired.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • a genuine interest in meeting and helping people of all ages and backgrounds
  • the skills to work in busy conditions and tight timeframes
  • the ability and endurance to perform the physical aspects and work-rate of the job to the standard required and in a safe manner
  • the skills to assist customers in their use of technologies
  • awareness of, or experience with, library management systems and technologies
  • the ability to interact well with others and enjoy being part of a team
