Geelong Library and Heritage Centre

A quarter of a million people live in the region served by the Geelong Regional Library Corporation. With its size and diversity the region hosts a unique population among Victorian library services, ranging from urban and neighbourhood areas in Geelong to small rural farming communities such as Bannockburn and Meredith and the coastal towns and tourist centres of Torquay, Barwon Heads and Queenscliff. Residents in Victoria’s second largest city and its smallest regional council area, sea changers and tree changers, farmers and holidaymakers all call the Geelong Regional Library ‘my local library’.

With a growing reputation for forward thinking, this is an exciting time to make the move to Geelong Regional Library Corporation as our services expand with the opening of new libraries as well as the introduction of innovative outreach programmes. We aspire to be a learning organisation committed to providing and supporting career development opportunities.

Anyone who is eligible to work in Australia is welcome to apply.

The Geelong Regional Library Corporation is committed to equipping staff with the knowledge and skills needed to provide excellent customer service and opportunities for a satisfying and fulfilling career.

When we are able to recruit for new and existing positions we advertise them on our website and in the Geelong Advertiser. Some positions may also be advertised in The Ballarat Courier,The Age and on library industry websites.
