Join the Brent Libraries team
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
We are looking for a Library Services Officer to manage the day to day running of Kilburn Library. We need someone who can lead a team and help us provide excellent service to our library users. As well as ensuring the efficient running of the library your role will include planning for the future and working on strategy for the continual improvement of our library offer, reaching new users and embracing library innovations.
This post would suit a candidate with strong leadership skills, the ability to manage and motive staff. Administrative skills are also a must.
There is a customer facing element to the role so the candidate should enjoy working with the public and have experience of providing excellent customer service.
