As a national charity, The Reading Agency champions children's reading because we want everyone to experience the benefits of reading from an early age. The Summer Reading Challenge, which we deliver in partnership with Libraries Connected, is one of the UK's biggest children's reading programmes.
We also work with young people; each year over 6,500 young volunteers help to deliver the Summer Reading Challenge as the legacy of our Paul Hamlyn funded Reading Hack.
As the Summer Reading Challenge celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019, we have undertaken a major review of the programme to ensure it continues to grow and thrive. We are now looking to implement the review recommendations as part of the development of our work with children and young people.
We also want to develop the volunteering opportunities we offer to young people because we know the difference it can make to their skills and confidence, the impact it has on their own well-being and the powerful role young volunteers play in inspiring children to read more.
We are looking for an ambitious and experienced strategic manager to head up our children and young people's team and lead this work in its next exciting phase of development.
