About the Role

We now have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team and support us with our vision to make places more liveable for everyone – places that connect us to each other and what we need, and where everyone can thrive without having to use a car.

Working alongside stakeholders, communities and businesses, your role will support our partners to develop and deliver projects and initiatives such as an e-bike loan scheme, using it to inspire other changes in the community.


About You

We are looking for a creative and innovative individual with a community development background. 

You will understand the challenges that communities and individuals face in moving around their town or city healthily.

You will be a well-organised self-starter and have experience of delivering projects that benefit the community.

So if you are a confident advocate for the benefits of walking & cycling and understand the role both have to play in making better places to live & work, apply today!
