Charity number 1108448
We are Living Streets Scotland, part of the UK charity for everyday walking. We want to create a nation where walking is the natural choice for every day, local journeys; free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illnesses and social isolation. We want to achieve a better walking environment and to inspire people of all generations to walk more.
Join us and together we will make Scotland a walking nation.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join our Scotland team to manage the delivery of multiple projects with local authorities and other partners in the public and private sector. The role will focus on walking to school projects and supporting communities with walking improvements, with the postholder being the lead contact for all our local projects and partnerships in Scotland.
You will be responsible for a small staff team and oversight of multiple budgets. A sound understanding of contract based work and financial reporting will be needed to succeed.
The postholder will work closely with the Head of Living Streets Scotland and the charity’s development team to renew and secure new projects, within the growing and dynamic active travel sector.
The post is homebased but requires regular travel to Edinburgh, and across Scotland to meet local project partners.
Living Streets is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and adults at risk; and expects all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be subject to background and criminal records checks as relevant to the job role.
