About the role

We currently have an opportunity for a driven person to join us as our Delivery Manager for Active Travel. It is an exciting role where you will lead a team to develop and implement projects designed to get more people walking, wheeling and cycling. Active Travel Hubs are where local communities will be able to access led walks and rides, events, information and advice on how to change their behaviour and lead more active lives.

You will lead on Active Travel Projects, working collaboratively with our local authority partners across Ayr and Kilmarnock, in the delivery of the Hubs projects. In addition, you will develop and maintain relationships with Paths for All, South and East Ayrshire councils, Scottish Government, Transport Scotland, local government, and other key Active Travel Delivery Partners to influence and deliver active travel in Scotland.

We offer a truly hybrid model at Sustrans, working flexibly to suit individuals needs. You have the flexibility to work from home a portion of the week but should be based within commutable distance to Glasgow, with weekly travel expected to our new hub in Glasgow (opening July 2022).This role will require travel and work at locations as necessary to undertake projects on behalf of Sustrans. 


About you

Using your previous project or event management experience, you will lead, motivate and manage the hubs team who will deliver the projects and events in the local communities.

Successful delivery of behaviour change or community engagement programmes or initiatives is essential for this role, and you will use your knowledge of the issues surrounding walking, wheeling and cycling to advocate for improvements across the region.

You will have the ability to build relationships with ease across a wide range of people from varied backgrounds, allowing you to effectively communicate with colleagues and partners alike.

We aim to be a truly inclusive employer and welcome applications from people from all parts of the community, in particular from under-represented groups.

Sustrans is committed to reducing inequality, valuing diversity and enabling inclusion.
