The Reader is a national charity that uses the power of literature and reading aloud to transform lives. Everyone who works with us, regardless of their job title, plays a part in contributing to this. Our Shared Reading model brings people together to read great stories and poems – creating powerful moments of connection. In a world that feels increasingly divided, and with increased pressures on our mental health, Shared Reading offers us time and space to share what matters to us.

As The Reader enters an exciting new phase of development and leadership, our newly appointed Associate Director of Marketing & Communications has joined the team to initiate and deliver some exciting and ambitious projects which will grow our brand and reach locally, nationally and internationally.

This role is a new key position that will form part of an expanded Marketing & Communications department who will work to increase our profile, our earned income through programming and our CIC (Community Interest Company) and grow the number of volunteers and participants across the UK.

You will lead on sharing the story of The Reader’s work and programme far and wide, ensuring that news of exciting projects and examples of impact reach as many eyes and ears as possible. Using your excellent relationship management skills to expand your contacts and networks, you will understand what makes a great story, and keep up to date with current affairs and the media landscape.
