An area wide network of well-maintained cycle and walking paths enabling safe access to and from work is a long held SevernNet ambition. With funding support from Highways England, and working in partnership with Sustrans, this is now a realisable ambition.
Highways England has, and is, investing in improvements to local cycle and walking paths, and providing funding to support the additional work needed to enable sustainable use of the cycle and walking network by local people, employers and their colleagues. This investment by Highways England is linked to development of the M49 Junction.
Sustrans is designing and delivering the new cycling and walking infrastructure and jointly providing, with SevernNet, a behaviour change programme.
We’re looking for a colleague to work with us who shares our vision for cycle and walking and more widely sustainable travel, across the area, and can work with local people, employers, colleagues travelling to/from work, local authorities, Sustrans and other stakeholders to make this happen.
The role will involve engaging and connecting with businesses, their staff, local communities and others, encouraging people to work together towards an increase in cycling and walking, particularly to and from work. You will be building on existing networks, groups and relationships to achieve this.
The role will be based in St. Andrew’s House, Avonmouth, in the SevernNet office.
Applications are invited by close of business (17:00) on Wednesday 24th January 2019. Further details and the Job Description are available to download here.
