Help us to support thousands of men and women in prison to unlock the power of reading.

Job Description


Shannon Trust is a national charity supporting prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t.

Our vision is to engage with every non-reading prisoner early in their sentence, to open up new avenues of opportunity, and give them hope for a new and different life. Shannon Trust supports and inspires people in prison to unlock the power of reading, changing their lives and those their peers.

Learning to read isn’t just a brilliant thing – it changes lives, builds confidence, makes the world an easier place to live in and the impossible possible. Unlocking the power of reading as an adult has a ripple effect – it’s the beginning of a learning journey which when shared with future generations; children, grandchildren, family and friends, stops the cycle of non-reading in its tracks.


You’ll play a key role in delivering upon our vision of “Every prisoner a reader”, helping us unlock the power of reading in your region: recruiting, training, coordinating and supporting a network  of volunteers to operate in prisons. You will promote best practice and build support for the Shannon Trust Reading Plan with stakeholders including our prisoner Mentors and Learners, prison staff, governors and those working across prisons such as other charities and providers.

As an experienced project manager with a track record of building and sustaining successful relationships, you will have a strong understanding of the issues facing people struggling to read in prison. You will have excellent communication skills and be able to manage your own time effectively.

The successful candidate will have a home base in an area with excellent transport links to prisons in London, the South East and South West and South Wales to maximise access to prisons. Access to your own car is essential.
