Lead Reader for the Western Isles

 

Open Book is seeking a Lead Reader to support its Gaelic language programme in the Western Isles. Although the programme will be delivered on-line, applicants living and working in the Western Isles will be preferred over other applicants.

 

About Open Book

 

Since March 2013 Open Book (www.openbookreading.com) has run shared reading and creative writing sessions for adults. In our 2020/21 year, we’ll have delivered well over 1000 sessions in around 80 locations – from the islands off Shetland to Stranraer, on Uist and Tiree, and in places like Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee and in the Central Belt. We work in a number of sectors – libraries, health care settings, with the elderly, refugees and migrants, community groups, and in prisons, libraries and other public settings. Stories and poems are read aloud then discussed in a relaxed, informal setting, with about one-third of the groups adding creative writing.

 

Applicant Requirements

 

The successful candidate will:

  • be fluent in both Gaelic and English;
  • have a love of reading and books;
  • be asked to join the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) scheme (Open Book will cover the costs of PVG membership and deal with the process on behalf of the Lead Reader);
  • be able to attend a paid training session to be held a few weeks after the successful candidate starts;
  • preferably be living in the Western Isles.

Shared Reading in Gaelic

 

The Lead Reader will be contracted to lead 10 shared reading workshops in Gaelic at intermediate level. Although the sessions will be online, it is expected to be limited to those living and working in the Western Isles. The workshops will be held on the same day and at the same time each month (e.g. the third Wednesday of each month). The fee per shared reading workshop is £100 (60 minutes) including preparation, delivery and follow-up feedback. Six required training hours – including initial training in the shared reading model – will be funded at
£25 per hour.

 

Lead Readers are asked to support their groups to attend a literary event during the course of the project year. This can be attendance at a Festival event or an author visit (either on-line or in person). An additional fee of up to £75 (3 hours at £25 ph) will be available to Lead Readers for events

 

Application Process

 

Please submit a CV to admin@openbookreading.com by 5pm on Friday 22 October 2021 outlining any experience you feel would be relevant, along with a covering letter telling us why you are eligible for this work. A shortlist of applicants will be invited for an interview over Zoom. The successful applicant will be expected to attend a short training session shortly thereafter. Please direct any questions related to the application to admin@openbookreading.com.
