Job description

Do you want to join a start-up charity with ambitious plans?

Each year, eight children in an average class leave primary school unable to read well. These children often struggle in school, and beyond. Reading isn’t just about books. It’s about reading a road sign, a safety manual, a birthday card. It’s understanding a job application and the prescription that could help save your life.

When a child can navigate words, they can navigate the world. That’s why we’re helping children develop the reading skills they need to succeed by creating flexible volunteering at the heart of our communities. The Bookmark app matches schools with fully safeguarded, vetted and trained reading volunteers in the local community, at the tap of a button. Each volunteer delivers one-to-one reading sessions for a six-week programme with a child who needs extra help with their reading. For the children who need us, we’re changing their story.

We are looking for a creative,  pro-active marketer to help us build our volunteer community and grow the Bookmark brand. We are proud to offer an innovative and unique volunteering programme, and we’re looking for someone who is excited to champion that and think creatively about how we can achieve cut-through in a crowded volunteering market.

You’ll be an ambassador for our brand, adopting our upbeat, friendly brand personality and creating communications that energise and excite both prospective and existing volunteers. You’ll have an eye for varied, engaging content, and the marketing flair to flex that for our different audiences, including our corporate supporter base. You will be comfortable with a target-driven approach, and confident using data and insights to make decisions and achieve a strong ROI.

This is a new role that will have a significant impact on the children we help, enabling us attract a wide pool of reading volunteers to deliver the reading support that they need.
