The Reader Vacancy: Head of Digital (Consultant)

Salary: Competitive
Hours: Flexible on approach to the project brief
Contract: Maximum 18 months

The Reader is looking for a consultant Head of Digital, to lead the transformation of its digital infrastructure over the next 18 months. This is an opportunity to work for a fast-paced organisation that is scaling its unique model of Shared Reading to build stronger and more supportive communities across the UK.

You are an experienced digital professional who can bring strong leadership skills and commitment to a user-driven design process. You’ll have experience of developing an overarching digital strategy and be able to understand and define business needs and then manage the development of a range of digital products to meet those needs.

This project is about defining, leading and delivering a digital strategy for The Reader. The organisation is investing in digital services to better attract, recruit, train and support volunteers as it grows its national model and to achieve better outcomes for the people the organisation reads with.

Technology must be an embedded thread running through the shared reading model, which strengthens the model as it is brought to new communities.

The Reader envisages this to be an 18-month contract with key deliverables and timescales, linked to external funding, however the organisation will be looking for prospective candidates to define their approach.
