Job description

Shannon Trust is a charity operating across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, supporting thousands of people in prison each year to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading. We inspire and train prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t.  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 new roles and are seeking proactive, committed, and enthusiastic applicants to join our team and help us continue our journey.

This role will lead the piloting of our community provision across Hertfordshire, Esex & Suffolk.  You’ll work closely with a handful of agencies and prisons, testing the delivery of our reading programme outside of the prison environment.  You’ll be an excellent relationship builder, confident in the management and training of volunteers, and able to problem solve. A proactive self-starter, you’ll bring your experience of community projects and will relish the opportunity to develop and deliver new programmes, seeking learning and innovation through the lifetime of the pilot.  Leaders, team players, those CJS savvy and familiar with digital business tools should apply.
