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.
Working closely with prisons, volunteers and mentors, this role will lead the delivery and development of our prison-based programme across South West England and Wales, 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, with knowledge of the criminal justice system (CJS) and who are comfortable with the use of digital business tools.
