Library Assistant recruitment agency listing

A library assistant will conduct administrative tasks and help patrons find what they're looking for.

The main purpose of a library assistant is to help patrons. They will often have to show them how to use the service and help them find items. The admin side of the job requires the assistant to maintain records of items that are received, issued and returned; and to send out fines to people who are late returning their borrowed items. Other tasks could include arranging book displays and cleaning.

Library assistants don't need to have any formal qualifications as on-the-job training is almost always provided. People who have had previous experience working in a library or admin job will usually be favoured. Candidates must be organised and have a good understanding of computers. Excellent oral and written English will also be required.

Library assistant jobs can be found throughout the country in a variety of different institutions. Jobs can often be found throughout recruitment agencies in universities, schools and traditional libraries.

The average salary for a library assistant is around £17,000. In large cities this could be slightly higher. Not all libraries are open during business hours, meaning they may only require part time workers.
