Job Opportunities

Would you like to work with a fast-moving and growing social enterprise located in a dynamic and inspirational community? Join us in developing and transforming our library and learning hub. Here you’ll find a list of vacancies that come up within Upper Norwood Library Trust as well as opportunities within other relevant organisations.

The Upper Norwood Library Hub came into community ownership in July 2016. Located in the heart of Crystal Palace, the Library Hub is a social enterprise providing cultural, learning and educational space. We offer an extensive range of events, courses, activities and an outreach programme that runs alongside a library lending service, provided by Lambeth council and part-funded by Croydon Council.

Applicants will not need prior experience of working in a library but must be sympathetic to the principles of a community space that includes a library. Entrepreneurial by nature, we believe in pushing the boundaries of what a library should offer and are constantly looking for new ways to develop all aspects of our business.
