  • $71,515 – $77,698 plus Superannuation

We are seeking a Tech Support Officer for our Bayswater Library.

To be a successful TSO you must have an affinity with technology. At any time of day, a library user may ask for help – we cannot pre-determine their questions, their devices or even their own capabilities. More often or not they have been told by a friend that “the lovely person at the library will help” – so be prepared.

Your team colleagues often look to you for support. You manage and facilitate weekly booked one-on-one sessions – developing technology literacy skills. These sessions may not necessarily be held in the library e.g. sessions could be provided at Aged Care Facilities. You may be asked to lead TSO sessions about a variety of technology devices in bigger group sessions (again, not necessarily in the library). The ability to train and provide the impetus to learn is essential. 

You support in-house technology training programs; you are your branch champion. To ensure success you need to build an excellent working relationship with your team, colleagues and the wider regional network of fellow TSOs.

You also provide first point of contact customer service. You undertake routine library tasks, keep the library looking attractive and inviting, and assist library staff as required. You must: 

  • Have a love of working with people, high-level interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence
  • Be prepared to muck in when your team needs you, from setting up tables and chairs for events, to participating in festivals, to returning and shelving library materials 

Your job is always changing, and we encourage you to take the initiative and to give it your best.
