Bookshop Manager

Moon Lane Books, the latest member of the Tales on Moon Lane family, is looking for a Bookseller/ Manager/Administrator/Events Organiser, generally highly adaptable and capable person, to join their growing team.

Moon Lane Books is a specialist children’s bookshop with a small, carefully curated general range, and a wide selection of non-book children’s products.  The shop runs a lively programme of activities, events and festivals across the year. MLB is the shop front for Moon Lane Ink CIC, dedicated to raising equality in children’s books; equality of representation, access, and roles in the publishing industry

You will be leading a very small, but enthusiastic and hard-working, team within the shop and co-ordinate more widely with the team at Tales on Moon Lane, Moon Lane Education and with the broader activities of Moon Lane Ink CIC. The shop is new and there is a lot of room for new initiatives as it grows.

A sense of humour, flexibility about time (no two days are ever the same!), extensive children’s book knowledge, excellent planning and organisational skills and staff management experience, are essential, but we are also, most importantly, looking for someone who is driven by a passion to raise equality in children’s books.

The existing team at Tales on Moon Lane are happy to give anyone thinking of applying an honest view of the realities of working within the Moon Lane family, and if this doesn’t put you off (!) we would really love to hear from you.
