Do you want to help us transform lives through reading and writing? We’re looking for someone passionate about digital to manage our mobile apps, and deliver new features to support our work.

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 currently has two mobile apps:

• Bookbug: a resource for parents and practitioners to encourage families to do more reading, rhymes and songs with their children on a daily basis. In addition it supports professionals working with the Bookbug programme to embed these values into their practice.

• Bookzilla: a digital reading buddy to encourage young people between the ages of 8 and 18 to support their reading journey.

Each app is linked to a specific programme team and the Digital Project Manager will work closely with each team to understand requirements and manage development with our external app agency.

The post sits within the Marketing team, reporting into the Digital Manager with regular catch-ups with the Early Years and Schools Communities teams.
