Reader in Residence, The Reader
Deadline: Fri 24 Jun 2022
This role requires a love of great literature and a drive to break down barriers to help others experience its power. At The Reader we call this ‘Shared Reading’. Shared Reading is a tool through which human life can be explored safely and - crucially - deeply.

Following training, the post holder will lead and support the delivery of regular Shared Reading groups with individuals progressing through the justice system. This will involve engaging with those who don’t feel such groups are for them, and embedding Shared Reading as part of the setting’s weekly schedule of activities.

The role is as part of our Criminal Justice Team, working in different settings across the UK and delivering our HMPPS contract for the enrichment programme for a nationwide body of Psychologically Informed Planned Environments (PIPEs) as part of the Offender Personality Disorder (OPD) Pathway.

Based at Leeds
Hours 8.75 hours / 0.25 FTE per location
Rate of pay £21,500 (pro rata) (Travel to and from settings will be accounted for)
