- Coordinating the sale of books to vendors
- Distributing Biblioasis titles to all vendors in a timely, efficient manner

- Keeping close and accurate record of stock levels, both internally and at vendors
What’s Mandatory for the Position:
- A driver’s license
- The ability to lift boxes, on a regular basis, that may be as heavy as 20 kg or more
- A flexible work schedule, which allows for occasional work on nights and weekends
- The ability to work and keep cool under occasional periods of high pressure
This contract position will expire on or around December 31, 2016, though it may be extended beyond that date.
