Thank you for your interest in working with us. We hope that in return we can offer you an exciting and varied job, a career filled with purpose, development opportunities and many additional benefits.
The Reader is a national charity that uses the power of literature and reading aloud to transform lives. Everyone who works with us, regardless of their job title, plays a part in contributing to this. 0ur Shared Reading model brings people together to read great stories and poems – creating powerful moments of connection. In a world that feels increasingly divided, and with increased pressures on our mental health, Shared Reading offers us time and space to share what matters to us.
Why work for us
“The Reader staff are a warm, generous and supportive team. A real cliché but it really does feel like one big family where everyone has your back.”
We consciously work to build the same warm and welcoming feeling, the feeling of belonging that you’ll find in a Shared Reading group, in our workplace.
Kindness is one of our values and it helps us care about how we treat each other, always aiming for encouragement, openness and trust.
In our commitment to build diversity into our teams and programmes, we are particularly keen to receive applications from people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds; LGBTQ+; those with disabilities, those with unconventional life experience or educational background.
