Through our work, we support more day-to-day journeys on foot or by bike, we encourage more local food to be grown and eaten in our communities, and we help increase the lifespan of our everyday items. We create opportunities to test new ideas, learn from them and share that learning with others. FEL is an organisation anchored in our communities. Our team are passionate about practical climate action and work in a way that supports collaboration and partnership working. We focus on inclusivity in everything we do, reflecting the needs of the people and communities we work with.

You will be an ambassador for active travel in the community, working closely with key local stakeholders. You will have a good standard of education and a keen interest in sustainable travel.

You will develop and deliver ‘in-school’ educational programmes and community outreach activities which will engage, encourage and support pupils to consider more environmentally friendly and physically active modes of transport, contributing to health, education and attainment outcomes. This will include delivering led rides and walks, events, competitions and bike repair workshops.
