We are seeking a highly motivated, professional and committed Active Travel Officer to deliver travel behaviour change projects which promote active travel and reduce private car journeys associated with travel to Island schools. Using funding secured from the Department for Transport, you will design and implement campaigns, and deliver training and events which transform access to education through active travel modes (cycling, walking and scooting). 
   
Working in a multi-disciplinary project environment, this exciting role will be responsible for leading the delivery of activities promoting walking, cycling and public transport for journeys between home and education settings. You will build and maintain positive relationships with a range of audiences, including young people, schools and communities.  

With a good standard of education, you will have experience of delivering behaviour change projects and understand the motivations required to deliver and measure mode shift amongst the target audiences.   

Your excellent written and verbal communications skills will enhance your ability to effectively engage, motivate and enthuse the target markets, and you will be required to demonstrate excellent communication and project management skills in a relevant field. 

You will join and add value to an experienced and diverse programme team at the forefront of active travel innovation. 

For an informal discussion about these roles please contact Chris Gregory on 07896415909.
