The Royal Society of Literature (RSL) is Britain’s national charity for the advancement of literature. Their world-class events programme offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore literature’s rich past and engage with the writers shaping its future, through around 20 events per year. RSL’s schools’ outreach programme, delivered in partnership with education charity First Story, is a crucial part of the RSL’s activities, and one which they hope to expand as they work towards bicentenary in 2020.
They are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced Events and Education Manager to play a central role in engaging the public in literature through events and education programmes at the RSL.
