An exciting opportunity to join our Community Paths Team

Paths for All is a Scottish Charity. We have a very clear focus. We want to get Scotland walking: Everyone. Everyday. Everywhere.

Our vision is for Scotland to be a walking nation. We want everyone to have the opportunity to be active every day, creating a happier, healthier and greener Scotland.

Our Community Paths team is looking for a Development Officer to join the team to support and develop community path developments and projects.

Well, you could be the person we are looking for!

Day to day tasks for the postholder will include working and supporting disadvantaged communities, supporting management of our community grants and support work on climate resilience through path networks and connect people with nature through our growing nature connectedness approach.

The successful candidate will enjoy working creatively and thrive in a busy environment on a wide range of activities. They should have the ability to form strong relationships with our key stakeholders, including partners, funders and community group and organisations.

If you’re looking for a new challenge in a varied role, and you’re interested in supporting communities to thrive and reducing health inequalities and working towards net-zero, we’d love to hear from you.

We offer the opportunity to be part of an organisation that recognises staff as our most valued asset. Attractive employment conditions include a contributory pension scheme and flexi-time policy. Paths for All has achieved the Healthy Working Lives Gold Award.
