About this role

The Head of Communications role is a new post which has strategic and operational responsibility for all aspects of communications (internal and external), marketing and brand management for The Reader. You will be a senior leader in the organisation, taking responsibility for developing and refining our messages to the world.  Your work will increase awareness of, and engagement with The Reader as an evolving, innovative charity and social enterprise with a strong Liverpool base and growing national, and international, reach.

The Reader is at an exciting point in its development. We have just finalised a new five-year business plan that will see the organisation evolve and grow a new volunteer-led model for Shared Reading to radically increase our reach across the UK. 2018 will also see the launch of the International Centre for Shared Reading at Calderstones Park, our Liverpool home. It is in this context that we are now investing in our communications function, new digital infrastructure and brand development. You’ll lead a small, committed team, work closely with The Reader’s Director Jane Davis and be a vital part of The Reader’s Senior Management team.
