Sustrans Scotland is looking for individuals with a passion for changing the spaces we live in and move through in favour of people on foot or bike. Our Infrastructure programme, Places for Everyone provides support to a range of partners to design and develop inspirational projects that restore the balance of Scotland’s streets in favour of people walking, cycling and wheeling.
Places for Everyone aims to create safer, more attractive, healthier places by increasing the number of trips made by walking, cycling and wheeling for everyday journeys. This role will support the successful delivery of Places for Everyone through dynamic leadership of a team of officers and supporting partners in using best practice approaches to design, engagement and behaviour change.
