$63,617 – $74,843 (pro rata for hours worked)

Are you an innovative library professional with a passion for working with the public? Do you have outstanding leadership and customer services skills?

Supervisors in Lending Services are responsible for the day to day running of the section and other City Library sections on evenings and weekends. This includes assisting customers in their use of the library, supervising and training staff and dealing with any emergency situations that may occur. Other duties include working on information desks, issuing, and returning library materials, registering new members, and cash receipting.

You will bring experience in public libraries or education and have considerable knowledge of Information and reference enquiry work and technology, along with a demonstrated ability to use initiative and take responsibility for tasks through to completion. You must be highly motivated and have excellent interpersonal skills to motivate your team in providing excellent customer service.
