Living Streets wants to create a walking nation, where everybody has the chance to gain from the health and social benefits this simple act can bring. Walking is also a vital ingredient of successful communities. Walkable towns and cities are often more vibrant socially and economically. Living Streets manages innovative national projects, working with schools, communities and workplaces to encourage more people to walk short journeys.
WOW, our year-round walk to school challenge, is perhaps the most notable, capturing the imagination of children in over 3,000 schools. We work with local authorities to help them improve streets and neighbourhoods. And with our supporters we campaign for positive change and public policies that enliven our streets.
Join us and together we will create a walking nation.
We’re looking for a creative and confident communications professional to join our dynamic Policy and Communications team at Living Streets. As part of the team, you’ll play a key role in helping us strengthen the voice for walking and ensuring our message is heard in Scotland. You will be a member of the Policy and Communications department and work day to day with the Living Streets Scotland team.
To excel in this role, you’ll need to be organised, collaborative and resourceful and have a good understanding of a variety of communications channels specific to Scotland. You’ll work closely with our wider policy and communications, project delivery and commercial teams and play a central role in communicating the impact we’re having in our work throughout Scotland. Your role will involve ensuring all our communications in Scotland are on brand and our impact is reflected in the Scottish media. You will also help to raise our profile throughout Scotland via smaller, targeted communications projects and wider stakeholder engagement.
