An exciting opportunity exists to join the Collections team at the Port Phillip Library Service, providing support to the Acquisition Librarian and Collections Senior Team Leader working in an innovative and fun environment. This is a frontline customer service role with a collection focus to help ensure that acquisition procedures are maintained.

This is a permanent part-time position at a Band 5 level (21 hours per week) that will be rostered over four days. It includes one evening shift per week and weekend shifts as part of a 3-month weekend roster cycle.
