An exciting opportunity to help support the development of Read Easy as it expands into North West England
Read Easy’s volunteer-run groups are set up and supported by Read Easy UK, a registered charity based in north Gloucestershire. The organisation is rapidly expanding; it currently has 23 affiliated groups, the majority of which are based in the South West or Central England, with more in development.
Read Easy UK is now looking for a Regional Adviser to work two days a week in North West England, who will ideally be based in or near Manchester. The aim of the role is to support volunteers to set up new Read Easy groups and to ensure that all groups provide a consistently high quality experience for all those they work with.
For this rewarding and interesting role, you will need to have an understanding of the issues involved in working with volunteers; strong people management and interpersonal skills; excellent communication skills; and experience and confidence in running meetings, presentations and training. A background in adult literacy would be an advantage but not essential. Please note that this role is home-based and involves regular travel and occasional evening and weekend working. The successful candidate will need to have at least two years’ relevant experience.
