About the Role

We now have an exciting opportunity to help us undertake projects across the North of England.

You will work on our “Paths for Everyone” and “Liveable Towns and Cities” programmes, with projects focused on getting more people walking and cycling by improving the National Cycle Network and working with local communities, reshaping their streets and encouraging greater active travel.

About You

We are looking for an excellent communicator who can build effective working relationships with a diverse range of project partners.

You will have an understanding of wider transport and/or urban design issues and how they interact with creating more liveable spaces.

In return we can offer you genuine flexibility around working patterns. We embrace values-driven and inclusive leadership and we listen and make time for innovation through our people-centred culture.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a team where you can make a big impact and where we value the contribution and expertise of everyone.
