About the Role


At Sustrans, we are proud to have one of the highest employee net promoter scores across all sectors in the UK, being in the top third of all employers for people experience and engagement, due to our highly motivated, energised, friendly and committed workforce. We now have a new opportunity for a skilled HR generalist to join us and help play a key part in our people agenda.
