Further Information

Stockton Library & Information Service is passionate about providing access to books, information, IT, events and activities to residents across the borough. For those unable to get to a library we take the service to them through our Mobile Services, this includes nursing and residential homes, schools and rural areas of the borough.

We currently have a vacancy for a Mobile Services Driver Assistant and we're looking for somebody with a positive attitude and a commitment to delivering a quality service to join the team.

You will be responsible for driving the 7.5 tonne Mobile Library as well as the Home Delivery Service van, taking the library service to residents across the borough. It is essential that you hold a driving licence that qualifies you to drive this size vehicle. You will be expected to undertake regular vehicle checks and adhere to servicing schedules.

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 range of backgrounds. An interest in books and reading would be beneficial as you will assist in putting together collections of books for loan to businesses and residential homes, support story times within schools and nurseries, as well as finding reading material to suit customers' preferences.

You will work within a small team and will be expected to take responsibility for your own work. IT skills are required in order to access our Library Management System, although training will be given on the system itself.
