We are a fast moving and creative organisation and need talented, committed and motivated staff to help us inspire a nation of young storytellers.

The Ministry of Stories is a writing and mentoring centre for young people in east London.

We inspire eight to 18 year olds through the power of storytelling, empowering them to unleash their imaginations, build their confidence and self-respect and enhance their communication skills.

Through a range of innovative writing programmes, and one-to-one mentoring, we help young people discover and realise their own creative potential.

Then we provide a publishing platform for young writers, so these fresh, exciting voices are shared with the world.

It all begins when visitors arrive and pass through Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, where they can stop and shop for fang floss and tinned fear or continue through the secret door to the Ministry…

Our people are key to our success – both staff and volunteers.
