Reading Solutions UK Ltd – Reading Development Consultant (Full Time, 37.5 hours/week) 

£45,000-£50,000 including Performance Related Bonus + Mileage Allowance + Expenses + Laptop & Phone

The position would suit either an educational professional (e.g. teacher with experience at senior or middle management level) or a business development manager with experience in the educational sector.

Reading Solutions UK Ltd is a thought-leader in helping pupils improve their life chances by becoming lifelong readers. As part of our offer to schools, we are the sole UK reseller for Reading Plus - a unique and highly engaging web-based programme aimed at pupil’s in Key Stage 2 and 3 that develops silent reading fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. 

Silent reading fluency is a key focus for Ofsted’s new EIF (Education Inspection Framework) - Reading Plus is the only online reading programme that explicitly models best practice for developing this essential skill. Results are exceptional.

Established in 500 schools nationally, we are seeking a highly self-motivated educational professional to work alongside a Reading Solutions UK Company Director to continue to develop our presence and sales in the West Midlands. 

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing company with a proven track record in educational sales and consultancy. Working from home, you would be responsible for raising awareness and supporting the implementation of Reading Plus in primary and secondary schools. Using your understanding of the pressures that schools are under to achieve excellence at Key Stage 2 SATs, you would be responsible for running pilots that demonstrate the impact of Reading Plus, ultimately leading to buy-in at Senior Leadership level. 

As well as supporting pilots of Reading Plus (generating and developing leads, training, analysing data and compiling reports, closing pilots), you would also be responsible for presenting at Headteachers meetings, participating in Reading Solutions UK ‘Reading for Pleasure Conferences’, and having an input into a steering group of educational professionals to support development of educational resources that engage pupils in reading.

You will need to be an effective and influential communicator, IT literate (Microsoft Office), and with excellent organisational skills. An understanding of current education practice relating to English/literacy is also essential. As the role will involve travelling to schools, and may include some overnight stays, you will need access to your own car/transport and a current clean driving license. 

Full training will be given on how to use Reading Plus and the consultative sales process. There may be opportunities for the right person to take up a more senior position in the company at a later date. 

If you are interested in this role, then please send us your details online at and/or if you have any questions then please call Michael Walker, Managing Director on 07828 096915,
