Employment Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in employment opportunities at Readings.

Readings is an independent bookseller with several branches around Melbourne; in Carlton, Hawthorn, Malvern and St Kilda. We also have a small shop located within the State Library of Victoria. You can read more about us by clicking here.

Customer Service positions are determined by our shop Managers. We’re fortunate to receive many unsolicited applications for employment. In fact, our Managers find that, when Customer Service opportunities arise, they’re able to take on people with bookselling or other relevant industry experience. Nevertheless, our Managers are interested to hear from people who share our passion for books, music and film, who can demonstrate a strong customer service focus, and who are keen to share their knowledge.

If you wish to provide your résumé, and give us an outline of relevant experience, details of your availability for work, and the areas of expertise on offer, we’ll have the information to hand should a position become available.

Your expression of interest can be made to Jan Lockwood, Human Resources Manager, via email on jan.lockwood@readings.com.au, or to the shop Manager directly. We can retain your details for up to a month, after which, if we don’t employ you, your personal information will be destroyed in accordance with our privacy policy.

Specialised positions within our shops and supporting departments also come up from time to time. When we need to recruit for such positions, you’ll find the advertisement below. Readings doesn’t offer unpaid positions.
