Maldon Books is looking for a temporary part-time bookseller to join our team for the Summer. This is a unique opportunity to work on an exciting project with us, both at the bookshop and Maldon Prom Park.


We’re looking for a knowledgeable, friendly individual, with great customer service and, most importantly, a lover of all things literature!

  • Assisting with events

  • Assisting with promotional events in store

  • Looking after the displays and ensuring the shop is clean and tidy for our customers

Ideally, due to the nature of this role, we will be looking for a candidate with previous experience in bookselling, however we will of course consider all applications - please do apply regardless, especially if you’re a book lover!


This is a temporary position, starting from 31st May to early September, with a couple of training days ahead of the start date. The role will take place on Saturdays and Mondays, though in some cases our weekly rota may change. Please only apply if you’re able to work on these days.
