Further Information

Stockton Libraries & Heritage Service is passionate about providing access to quality books, information, IT, events and activities to residents across the borough.

We are currently looking to recruit casual Caretakers to work within Stockton Central Library.
Candidates should have a positive attitude and a commitment to delivering a quality service.

You will need to be enthusiastic, reliable, flexible and have good communication skills as you will deal with members of the public of all ages and from a diverse range of backgrounds.

A calm nature is required as you could occasionally deal with challenging behaviours presented by users of the Library and Customer Services Centre. Previous caretaking experience and working with the public is essential.

As a casual caretaker you will work on an as and when required basis, covering shifts where staff are on annual leave or away from work due to illness.

Your primary role will be to help the Librarian in the day-to-day running of the Library, setting up the Jim Cooke Conference Suite for meetings, opening and closing the building and working large scale events delivered by the Library and Information Service such as Crossing the Tees Book Festival.

The work is physical by nature due to the moving around of furniture to accommodate the many meetings on the site and activities that take place within the Library setting.

IT skills are essential as you will help users of the facility who have requested use of the Multimedia Suite as part of their booking requirements for the Jim Cooke Conference Suite.

For detailed information on this role, please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification.

For a further informal discussion, please contact Deb McDonagh, Communities Libraries Officer on 01642 528484.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council ensures that all customers, both internal and external receive a consistently high quality level of service.
