Do you want to help us transform lives through reading and writing? We are looking for an efficient administrator who can balance multiple priorities to join our Writing Communities team.

Scottish Book Trust is a national charity that believes books, reading and writing have the power to change lives. A love of reading inspires creativity, improves employment opportunities, mental health and wellbeing and is one of the most effective ways to help break the poverty cycle. We work towards a Scotland where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive through literacy.

Scottish Book Trust’s Writing Communities programme supports writers at all stages of their careers with advice, professional development opportunities, bursaries and mentoring.

The Writing Communities Administrator provides efficient administration to support the smooth running of the Writing Communities programme working across two main strands - the Writer Development programme and the Live Literature programme. The Live Literature programme is a national initiative that works with an extensive range of partner organisations to allow the people of Scotland to meet and engage with authors, playwrights, poets, storytellers and illustrators. The Writer Development programme includes the New Writers Awards, Ignite Fellowship and the Next Chapter Award.

The role also provides support more generally across the Writing Communities programme, as required.
