Head of Adult Reading, The Reading Agency

Description

National charity, The Reading Agency bring reading to people of all ages and backgrounds, so everyone can read their way to a better life.

One in six people struggles to read. However, research shows that when we inspire people to read for pleasure they benefit from far greater opportunities in everyday life, education and employment.

Reading Ahead and Quick Reads are at the heart of our emergent reader offer for people aged 16 and above and offer a gateway to these opportunities.  We want to extend the reach and impact of our programmes, raise their profile and ensure their long term sustainability.

We are looking for an ambitious and experienced strategic manager to lead the development of our adult offer and our work with less confident readers.
