Job description
 
This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

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 proven, confidential, free, one-to-onereading 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 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. The role will also include some responsibility for communications and PR.

Over the last few years, our work has received a considerable amount of national and local TV, radio and other media coverage and our fundraising to date has demonstrated that there is growing interest amongst funders to support what we do. Candidates for this post will need to have the motivation, initiative and persuasive abilities to further develop that interest, so that we can realise our ambitious plans for growth. 

There are exciting times ahead for Read Easy and we are looking forward to welcoming a new member to our small Head Office team.  The culture is friendly, focused, mature and hard working. This role is for 3 - 4 days per week (exact hours to be agreed on appointment) and could be partly home-based, but would require at least one day per month to be worked in our office in north Gloucestershire.

For more information about this role and the requirements for applications, please download the job description.
