Local library looking for relief assistants (so not regular hours, just here and there). I've done the job before so no worries on that score, but as I'm still b/fing ds2 I won't be available for long periods, so I am hoping that they will still consider me!

Good luck Miaou, I would love a job like that smile.

Miaou Wed 19-Sep-07 22:41:14

Thanks tanee - shameless bump for more luck-wishing wink

Aero Wed 19-Sep-07 22:42:41

Oh, good luck miaou - you'll shine through, I'm sure. smile

Marina Wed 19-Sep-07 22:48:48

May your date stamp be freshly inked!

Good luck Miaou XXX

Good luck!

(am not a librarian but would like to be one )

bookthief Wed 19-Sep-07 22:49:45

Fingers crossed!

Marina Wed 19-Sep-07 22:51:51

We will all get the train up there with our lightpens and scythe them down Jedi Knight style if they have the temerity not to offer you the job (and if that doesn't scare them I'll come and garrotte them with my Denise Interchangeables)

Oh it's only having your hair in a bun, wearing glasses and saying "shhhhh!" <<<isn't it?>>>

Best of luck!

Marina Wed 19-Sep-07 22:57:13

Look, the profession has moved on loads since your day missy

Marina Wed 19-Sep-07 22:57:37

I do infomapping and knowledge management you know zzzzzzzzzz

Miaou Wed 19-Sep-07 22:59:08

lol you lot!

Thanks for the good wishes - will let you know how I get on tomorrow smile

marthamoo Thu 20-Sep-07 09:27:22

I'm sure I could do infomapping and knowledge management if only I knew what they were...

Keeping my fingers crossed for you today, Miaou.

Marina Thu 20-Sep-07 09:56:39

I'm sure you could too Moo. For most chalk-face librarians these are known as the "no-shit sherlock" professional tasks hmm. Wish I'd thought of writing a book about them hmm
Best of luck today Miaou XXX

Good luck vibes obviously worked!! I got the job!!

Have to go through Disclosure Scotland first so it will be a while before I can start though smile.

bookthief Thu 20-Sep-07 15:36:50

Hurrah!! Congratulations. BTW, sometimes the Disclosure checks are pretty quick depending on how many they're dealing with at that time, I think they get gummed up when the student teachers all have to be done for placements. My last one came through in 2 weeks. (Then the HR deparment delayed my start by a further 6 weeks by losing my Occupational Health form and not telling me.. but there you go. hmm)

Marina Thu 20-Sep-07 15:38:05

Ace, well done

berolina Thu 20-Sep-07 15:41:53

grin fab!

niceglasses Thu 20-Sep-07 15:43:46

Ohh all the very best.

Am trying myself, got couple of job apps in for Uni Library. Did try council but of the two I applied for the post was 'frozen'...or maybe they are just saying that.........

Anyway, lettuce know how you get on. Give 'em Hell.

niceglasses Thu 20-Sep-07 15:44:15

Oh, am being dim. Very well done. Pleased for you.....

Tanee58 Thu 20-Sep-07 16:24:26

Congratulations Miaou, very envious, you surrounded by books and in such a lovely part of the country. envy.

marthamoo Thu 20-Sep-07 18:38:16

Oh well done you! Your sssshhhhhing must have been particularly good grin

Miaou Thu 20-Sep-07 21:04:52

I did a pretty mean glasses-on-the-end-of-the-nose stare too, moo grin

cousinsandra Thu 20-Sep-07 21:07:21

oooh, I just got the same job here. 10 hours a week in local library - I can't flipping wait! I am still waiting for the CRB check to come through though. I'm really hoping I get to say 'ssshhh' a lot and be obeyed, unlike at home....

Marina Thu 20-Sep-07 21:49:48

Don't build your hopes up cousinsandra grin
