This post sits in the Development and Partnerships Team, which is responsible for delivering income to sustain and grow The Reader’s work and developing the relationships that can help make that work happen.

You’ll be working in a small, fast-paced team that needs to flex to opportunities as they arise, so you’ll get experience of working with a variety of stakeholders and income streams. We’re looking for someone who’s as happy on the phone to an individual donor as they are crafting a bid for a grant-maker. Shared Reading is all about relationships and connections and that is what this role is about. Providing high quality stewardship to our funders and partners is a priority for our team and we are looking for someone who is driven to generate new income by spotting and nurturing new relationships.
