- Experience of assessing the needs of young people and creating personalised support packages.
- An understanding of different methods that can be employed to positively engage with young people from diverse backgrounds
- Ability to work collaboratively across team and organisational boundaries, negotiating and building relationships with schools, local statutory services and the voluntary sector
- Ability to establish and deliver a new programme of work within a set timescale and on budget
In return for your efforts you’ll receive a competitive salary, excellent training and development, and a host of staff benefits including:

Older people can experience barriers that prevent them from engaging in local activities and hinder them from keeping active; this may be because of a significant life event like a bereavement or periods of ill health resulting in a lack of confidence. Age UK South Gloucestershire working in partnership with Wesport is looking at reducing these barriers through walking. Walking has amazing health benefits, is accessible and is a great way to reintroduce physical activity into daily life.
This pilot group walking project is supported by local NHS Ageing Well funding under the national 'Live Longer Better' programme. The project will look to develop and support older people by introducing more physical activity to their lives through short weekly walks in areas across South Gloucestershire. We aim for these group walks to be inclusive, flexible enough to adapt to older people's lives and abilities, and act as a gateway to enjoying more regular physical activity. Group walks are appealing to people who have not taken part in exercise for some time, are nervous about walking alone or don't yet feel ready to join a Walking for Health programme, where the shortest walks are a mile long.
As the Walking Project Coordinator, you would develop, coordinate and deliver our new supported walking service for older people throughout South Gloucestershire. Duties will include building relationships with GPs across the area and establishing referral routes, publicising the service, and planning and leading walks. The successful candidate will also identify & implement a reward incentive for those engaging in walking activities.
If you have an enthusiasm for and understanding of the importance of walking for health, can motivate and engage a group, are a good communicator, and would relish the opportunity to positively impact the lives of older people, we would like to hear from you.
Age UK South Gloucestershire offers a generous benefits package, and the charity is committed to equalities, diversity and inclusion and therefore encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We are ideally looking for a candidate available to work 28 hours per week, but we are happy to discuss flexible working and will consider applications for those wishing to work between 24-32 hours per week.
If that person could be you, download an application pack from our website. Applications must be made using the form on our website, and completed application forms should be returned to us directly. Applications will not be accepted when submitted via agencies or other recruitment platforms.
You are advised to submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to close the post at any time once we have received sufficient applications.
