Do you want to help us transform lives through reading and writing?

We are seeking an experienced programme manager to lead on the development and delivery of all aspects of the First Minister’s Reading Challenge.

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.

The Challenge encourages reading for pleasure in the classroom by providing ways to engage with books, author events and workshops as well as learning materials. It culminates in a national celebration event.

The School Communities team delivers a range of programmes that inspire children and young people to engage with reading and writing.

The post also works closely with the School Communities team to ensure co-ordinated delivery and optimum impact for our school community audiences.
