Job description

Do you have experience of working with and mobilising volunteer teams and engaging local stakeholders in the community? Can you bring knowledge of behaviour change campaigns and support for literacy in the early years?

We are recruiting a Community Organiser to support the delivery of literacy projects with an early years focus in the North East of England. Based in either Newcastle or Middlesbrough with flexible homeworking.

This role will support the delivery of the Hungry Little Minds campaign in Newcastle and Middlesbrough, bringing together local stakeholders and volunteer teams to reach target audiences and ensuring the campaign is integrated with other local activities. You will work to recruit and retain Literacy Champions who can act as advocates for the Hungry Little Minds campaign in identified target communities in Newcastle and Middlesbrough, as well as supporting wider campaign priorities in the region.

You will need to able to develop high-quality engagement with volunteers, supporting them to create their own programmes of work while keeping the bigger picture in sight. You will help them to collate evidence of the work and tell the story of our successes.

You will need excellent communication and administration skills, as well as experience of event management and planning, managing projects and reporting outputs.

One person in six has poor literacy skills that impact on every area of their life. A child without good reading, writing and communication skills will struggle to succeed at school, and as an adult they could be locked out of the job market. Poverty doubles the likelihood that, by the age of five, a child's literacy skills will be below average.

Flexible working and opportunity to be based partly from home.

If you are interested in supporting literacy in the North East, please send a copy of your CV to Amelia Lee: [email protected]

Please note, deadline for this role is Monday 28th October.
