50% of the people that end up in prison either can’t read or struggle to: whether it’s letters from loved ones, the menu or job ads. At Shannon Trust, we enable prisoners to teach other prisoners how to read, so they’re better set up for a positive future - come and join our team, and help make it happen.
2020 was a year of adaptation brought about by COVID19 – we revised our delivery model and now, in 2021, we want to develop much further. To support this, we are now recruiting to a new role and are seeking proactive, committed, and enthusiastic applicants to join our team and help us continue our journey.
Working closely with prisons, volunteers and mentors, this role will lead the delivery and development of our prison-based programme, maximising opportunities for people in prison to learn to read. You’ll be an excellent relationship builder, confident in the management and training of volunteers, and able to problem solve. We want to hear from applicants who can lead, be a team player and who are comfortable with the use of digital business tools.
Job share applications are welcome.
