About this role

This role requires a motivated and community minded individual.  The main thrust of the role is to sustain and expand The Reader’s Shared Reading work in a designated operational Hub, within a greater region.

Whether someone has been reading all their life or have never picked up a book before, they’ll find a warm welcome in a Shared Reading group.

  • ·        Supporting our volunteers to ensure they have a great experience and deliver quality shared reading
  • ·        Building local relationships that will help us ensure our groups reach the people who need them most, attract new volunteers and provide funding for future sustainability
