Read Easy UK is changing the lives of many adults with its programme of volunteer-led adult literacy groups. The Taunton and Wellington Management Team, affiliated to the national adult literacy organisation, is looking to recruit a volunteer who would play an important role in the running of our local group.
This is a flexible role focused on meeting the administrative needs of the group. Team Meetings are held approximately four time a year although under Covid-19 restrictions meetings are being conducted on-line. As the Secretary you would distribute agendas, participate in meetings (including our AGM), record and distribute notes on required actions.
Some previous experience of administration is desirable and you would need to be comfortable using a computer and communicating online. Before starting you would have an opportunity to meet the rest of the team and receive all the information you need about our group and the responsibilities of the Secretary.
If you enjoy working as part of a team, and would like to make a real difference to the lives of local people with poor literacy skills, this role may suit you.
The Taunton and Wellington group is available to anyone aged 18 or over who lives in this area and who would like help with their reading.
