Role

Paths for All's vision is for a happier, healthier Scotland where physical activity improves quality of life and wellbeing for all. Our aim is to significantly increase the number of people who choose to walk in Scotland and a key element of this work involves promoting active travel.

Smarter Choices, Smarter Places (SCSP) is Paths for All’s behaviour change programme aimed at getting people to walk, cycle and wheel more for short journeys and adopt sustainable travel options for longer journeys. Currently in its seventh year of funding from Transport Scotland, the Programme provides grants to public and third sector organisations, encourages the sharing of good practice and promotes collaborative work at local, regional and national level. SCSP is used by all Scotland’s local authorities and funds many other third and public sector organisations to deliver locally specific initiatives that meet local needs.

The role of the SCSP Manager is pivotal in ensuring that the Programme continues to deliver on its core mission whilst expanding its reach to new audiences. The successful candidate will be required to demonstrate strong organisational and communication skills alongside experience of developing and implementing innovative operational plans and managing a high-performing team. This is an exciting and challenging time to ensure Paths for All’s increasing levels of investment in active and sustainable travel make a contribution to Scotland’s climate change and public health priorities.

In addition, the SCSP Manager is a member of Paths for All’s senior management team contributing to all aspects of organisation wide strategic and operational planning and delivery.
