Living Streets wants to create a nation, where walking is the natural choice for local, everyday journeys. Walking is a vital ingredient of successful communities and walkable towns and cities are often more vibrant socially and economically. Living Streets manages innovative national projects, working with schools, communities and workplaces to encourage more people to walk short journeys. WOW, our year-round walk to school challenge, is perhaps the most notable, capturing the imagination of children in over 2,000 schools. We work with local authorities to help them improve streets and neighbourhoods. And with our supporters we campaign for positive change and public policies that enliven our streets.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join Living Streets technical team.
The Living Streets Technical Coordinator will play a critical role in helping to create environments which support and encourage walking. Through auditing streets and engaging the public the Technical Coordinator will identify a range of large and small-scale physical improvements and develop the case for investment in walking infrastructure.
Ensuring strong partnership and policy links will also be essential to maximise our impact. Key partners will include local authorities, regional transport partnerships and public transport operators.
