The Reading Agency is looking for an ambitious and experienced strategic manager to head up its children and young people’s team.

Join a national charity as it continues to develop and deliver its vision to champion children and young people’s reading.

One of the UK’s biggest children’s reading programmes, the Summer Reading Challenge, is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2019. The Reading Agency has undertaken a major review of the programme to ensure it continues to grow and thrive and is now looking to implement the review recommendations as part of the development of its work with children and young people.

The Reading Agency is also developing the volunteering opportunities on offer to young people. Young volunteers can play a powerful role in inspiring children to read more, while improving their own skills and confidence.
