Volunteer Development Worker for Read Easy Bristol
We help adults learn to read
This is an exciting opportunity to join us at Read Easy Bristol as we bring Read Easy to even more areas in Bristol. We are now established in the South and North of Bristol are now looking to move into Central and East Bristol particularly Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill. We are hoping to be able to recruit someone from one of these Communities
The person in this role will work closely with, and be well supported by, members of the management team. As it is a new role we would help develop and clarify the details of the responsibilities involved.
Broadly, the development worker would be involved in:
1) Researching the need for Read Easy across Bristol and linking with relevant organisations
2) Engaging new readers, coaches and potential coordinators
3) Helping organise public meetings on occasion
4) Reporting back to the Managment Team
We are looking for someone who has initiative, and who is enthusiastic about helping adults who want help to learn to read. We welcome people from all different backgrounds, ages and ethnicities.
It is a flexible post and time commitments will vary but it is estimated to be no more than some 6 hours a week. It might be possible to split the role across the area if this allowed more than one member of the local community to become involved.
The development worker needs to have access to email and be willing to travel across Bristol when needed.
