Customer and Library Services Officer

Mitchell Shire Council has embarked on Victoria’s last great story of growth. 

Located just 40 minutes from Melbourne where the city meets the country, we’re renowned for our scenic beauty that’s rich in both history and heritage. We’re home to a mix of beautiful natural landscapes, town ships and emerging communities in some of Australia’s fastest-growing suburbs. 

Our organisation is growing and we’re building for a truly exciting future – with more than 170,000 people expected to move into our municipality over the next 20 years. 

With that growth, comes a great opportunity to join our Customer and Library Services team – to make your mark and create a legacy for our community. We’re planning for that exciting period of growth and development where we are expanding and increasing our services to the community.  

We’re currently recruiting for Customer and Library Service Officers to deliver exceptional customer experiences across a range of channels and sites across our municipality.

A champion for positive change, you’ll bring a passion for positive community outcomes, be willing to work with a diverse range of stakeholders and balance the demands of a complex organisation.

About You

We’re looking for individuals who pride themselves on exceptional customer service, who possess a high level of emotional intelligence and who are empathetic to the diverse needs of our customers and can problem solve and find creative solutions.

As our Customer and Library Service Centres are open six (6) days a week, we are looking for individuals who would be available to work Saturday morning’s.
