Job description

Read Easy is a small, but rapidly growing charity that delivers life-changing opportunities to adults who struggle with their reading. We are, in fact, the only national organisation attempting to offer a confidential, free, one-to-one reading coaching programme for the thousands of adults in our communities who can’t read at all or who struggle to read.

We are looking for someone who shares our passion for our work and has the initiative, skills and experience to really drive our fundraising so that we can extend our reach to all parts of the country as part of our new ten year strategic plan. 

We have developed a strong case for support, which includes detailed statistics demonstrating the need for Read Easy across the country. Our work has already received good national and local TV and other media coverage and our fundraising to date has demonstrated that there is significant interest amongst funders in supporting what we do. Candidates for this post will need to have the motivation, initiative and persuasive abilities to develop that interest and convert it into coherent and successful fundraising.

There are exciting times ahead for Read Easy and we are looking forward to welcoming a new member to our small Head Office Team in north Gloucestershire.  The culture is friendly, focused, mature and hard working. For more information, please download the role profile here. To apply, please provide your CV with a covering letter laying out in detail why you are applying for the post and how you consider your skills and experience meet the job description. Please note that applicants who do not provide this detailed covering letter will not be considered.
