We want to create a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday, local journeys; free from congested roads and pollution, reducing the risk of preventable illnesses and social isolation. We want to achieve a better walking environment and to inspire people of all generations to enjoy the benefits the simple act of walking brings.

Join us and together we will create a walking nation.

You will build and maintain strong and supportive relationships with project partners (combined authorities and local authorities) and support the team’s engagement with project audiences, in particular primary schools.

The role will be home-based in North West England, West Midlands or South/West Yorkshire, with regular travel in these regions and to Living Streets offices required (subject to our internal guidance in response to Covid-19 restrictions).
