We're Hiring!

We are looking for a motivated book lover to join our team at Moonbeam Books.

 

At Moonbeam Books, our mission is to connect readers with their perfect book. Your job as a bookseller is to engage with our customers to find them the best book for their need – whether it’s a new series for a super reader or a last-minute gift for a birthday party. We are known for our curated selection and our expert recommendations so our booksellers must be ready to do their homework about not only our books but also what is trending in the world of children’s books.

We are a tight-knit team and we depend on everyone to work together to make the Moonbeam experience exceptional. We are looking for a hard-working, passionate, and creative person who can bring new ideas and skills to our little store.

A passion for books and reading is a must; retail experience is not. We encourage you to apply without any direct retail experience if you think you will excel at the job and are willing to build the necessary skills to succeed as a bookseller.

What you will do:

  • Provide friendly customer service by efficiently and respectfully interacting with customers

  • Stock the shelves with new product and reshelve existing product with accuracy (practice your ABCs!)

  • Stay up-to-date on new releases and books with buzz

  • Maintain an organized store by using down time to clean and sort shelves

  • Gift wrap (don’t worry – we’ll teach you!)

What you will bring:

  • Interpersonal skills – be friendly and professional with customers

  • Self-sufficiency – complete basic tasks without supervision

  • Teamwork – we are a small team who support each other at work

  • Willingness to learn new systems – our point of sale system is DOS inspired (gen z – google it)

  • Social media competency – for the ‘gram

This is a part-time position (10-15 hrs per week) and the successful candidate will have to work evenings and weekends. Although COVID-19 has limited our in-person events for now, our new bookseller may be asked to assist with in store events, clubs, and birthday parties in the future.

Please send your resume to info@moonbeambooks.com and include a little blurb about what you’re currently reading and what your favourite book was when you were little and why (no Harry Potter, that’s too easy). Potential candidates will be contacted before August 10 and interviews will be conducted via Zoom.
