BookTrust Relationship Manager 

Location: London office based for 2/3 days per week with home working or attendance at meetings on other days (Currently temporarily home based due to COVID-19) 

Contract: Full time, Permanent 

Salary: £32,500 to £36,000 per annum 

BookTrust is the UK's largest children's reading charity. We know that children who read are happier, healthier, more empathetic, and more creative. They also do better at school. Working with every local authority and across every region in the country we reach over 3 million families a year via partners in schools, children's centres, health visitors and libraries. This incredible network helps us to deliver our imaginative programmes which improve educational outcomes, raise aspirations and ultimately effect lasting social change.
We are now seeking to recruit a Relationship Manager. Working as part of a team of six, our Relationship Managers work directly with local authorities, particularly education, public health, libraries and early years settings, to ensure that BookTrust resources are delivered to children and families across the country with maximum impact. 

We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with a proven track record of building strong relationships across diverse networks. The role would particularly suit someone seeking to move to the charity sector from a local government, politics, policy or early years background.
