Do you want to help us transform lives through reading and writing? We seek a Coordinator to research the impact of the Bookbug and Read, Write, Count book gifting programmes and support evaluation across our Early Years Programme.

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.

Bookbug and Read, Write, Count are book gifting programmes funded by Scottish Government and delivered by Scottish Book Trust. Bookbug gives every child in Scotland four free bags of books as babies, toddlers, three and five year olds; Read, Write, Count continues with a further two book bags for all children in P2 and in P3 each year.

This role will manage a new piece of research exploring the impact of the Bookbug and Read, Write, Count book gifting programmes since Bookbug's inception 11 years ago.
