About the Role

We now have an exciting opportunity to join our network development team.

Your role will put you at the centre of 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.

Using both skills you have and skills you’ll develop in the role, you will manage a small team to plan, develop and construct walking and cycling routes; as well as leading on the delivery of walking and cycling routes yourself.

A truly varied role: one day you could be out on site exploring options for a new route; another you could be working collaboratively with team colleagues across the region to meaningfully engage with local communities; the next you could be leading a team meeting; another day, putting the finishing touches to compelling reports and feasibility studies for clients.

There will be regular travel for site visits and meeting colleagues, partners and clients across the South of England to places such as Bristol, Plymouth, Southampton and Reading.

About You

We are looking for someone with direct or transferable experience of transport planning or design, and of managing people and projects.

If you are passionate about health, sustainability or the environment and want to work somewhere you can make a big impact, then please get in touch!

Equality, diversity and inclusion

We actively encourage applications from people from all parts of the community, particularly where we are under-represented. Currently, this includes disabled people, and those from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups.

Sustrans is committed to reducing inequality, valuing diversity and enabling inclusion.
