Stockton Library Service is currently compiling a list of relief courier drivers. The successful applicants will be expected to provide holiday and sickness cover as and when required, working between 8am and 4pm from Monday to Friday.

We are looking for someone with a positive attitude and a commitment to delivering a quality service to join the team. You will be required to drive our Courier vehicle which travels between libraries situated across Stockton on Tees.

You will need to be enthusiastic, reliable and flexible with good communication skills as you could find yourself dealing with members of the public of all ages and from a range of backgrounds. Primarily you will be delivering book stock and post which has been returned to Library sites during the working day and distributing circulating collections and new stock around Libraries. This will entail regular lifting and carrying of boxes of books and may also involve the occasional moving of equipment and furniture. You will be expected to undertake regular vehicle checks and adhere to servicing schedules as set out by the Fleet Management section of the Council.

Time management skills are required as you will be responsible for ensuring all Library sites are serviced during the daily schedule although the work will be directed by the Library Improvement Coordinator.

Familiarisation training will be given before you are permitted to drive the vehicle. When the opportunity arises you will undertake a manual handling course. A full clean driving license is required.
