We are on a mission to give children and young people from disadvantaged communities the literacy skills to succeed in life. You could join us to lead our Literacy Hub in Hastings.
Our Literacy Hubs are a creative, place-based response to the challenges of intergenerational low literacy, and we now have 14 around the country. Each is tailored in response to local assets and need, and makes a 10-year commitment to transforming lives in the area.
As Hub Manager for Hastings, you will work with a range of partners to shape and deliver activity as part of the local strategy. Specifically, you will support the delivery of our Connecting Stories project, which is funded by Arts Council England to support reader and writer development across all 14 Hubs. This will include work with authors, distribution of books and other resources, community events and a social media campaign, and each Hub will develop their own plans based on community and partner input.
Your initial focus will be on building links with key partners, completing the community engagement and consultation to finalise plans and beginning delivery. Beyond that, there will be a wider role engaging with a range of partners, including schools, business and cultural partners to join up provision and find new ways to work together.
You will work as part of our communities and local areas team, alongside Hub and Project Managers across all 14 Hubs and our national programme management team. You will be based in Hastings, as a home working role, with significant travel around the local area to support partnerships and delivery, and nationally where necessary.
