Application for a Library Assistant
I have recently seen your advert for a Library Assistant and would be interested in applying for this role.
I have always had a keen interest in books, gathering and researching information, reading newspapers and magazines and generally finding out as much information as I possibly can. Combined with my background in a customer services environment I feel that I would make an excellent Library Assistant.
I have researched the role and believe that I have a good understanding of this role and what it entails. I understand that I would be supporting a Library team to ensure the smooth running of the Library and dealing with customers to help them locate the books etc that they are looking for. I understand that as part of this role I will be responsible for ensuring that I keep detailed records of the material leaving and entering the library, dealing with enquiries etc.
I have a friendly nature and feel that I am helpful in my approach to people’s needs and that I could perform well in this role as I can work well in a team environment as well as on my own initiative.
I have enclosed my CV for you to look at, should you have any further questions relating to my experiences please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
