It's a little complicated - it is fixed-term maternity leave cover starting in the mid year, but with part-time work available almost immediately.
The part-time hours will be every Saturday and then other days as required to cover staff leave, illness and busy periods.
These days will also be used to train the successful applicant to take over the full-time p
That role is mainly a back office one - in charge of receiving our books, entering them into our system, pricing them, allocating customer orders and following up on any issues. Full computer literacy, close attention to detail and the ability to cope with pressure are essential attributes. Whilst you will be alongside the working owners and highly experienced staff you will also have a high degree of autonomy in this position.
As a constantly busy full service bookstore we will also require you to move quickly into bookseller mode, advising, serving and gift-wrapping alongside the many and varied tasks we undertake. Naturally you will be a reader.
The full-time hours (9am - 5.30pm, Saturday 9am to 4pm) are on a two weekly roster.
Monday - Friday week 1 Tuesday - Saturday week 2.
Previous book-selling or retail experience is not regarded as essential and we're looking for people who want this job, not just a job so a CV alone won't cut it. Your cover letter will be important.
Convince us that this is your job - by March 31st.
