We are Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.

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.

For 90 years we’ve been a beacon for walking. In our early days our campaigning led to the UK’s first zebra crossings and speed limits. Now our campaigns and local projects deliver real change to overcome barriers to walking and our groundbreaking initiatives such as the world’s biggest Walk to School campaign encourage millions of people to walk.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to lead the Living Streets technical team.

The Principal Technical Advisor will be responsible for providing technical expertise across Living Streets enabling the organisation to increase our effectiveness to create streets fit for walking. They will play an important role in the management and delivery of key work across the UK, engaging strategically with senior stakeholders and representing Living Streets externally.

The role will be responsible for growing the organisation’s capacity to work with local and national stakeholders and supporting making the economic case for walking.
