Our role is to provide creative and sustainable support which enables people to live active and healthy lives in their local communities in ways that they choose. Our Core Values guide how we work and inform our decision making. As an organisation we are in a good place, we have a great team, and we are excited about our plans for the future.
If you have a strong belief in helping young people becoming independent and in encouraging more people to use sustainable methods of transport, you may be the right person for this role.

You may have experience of working with young people or just feel you could support people with diverse needs to learn to travel independently. You will enjoy the rewards of watching the self-esteem and confidence grow when a young person gets to travel independently for the first time. This project is not just about getting to school but also opens up a world of opportunity for their future life.
Working well within a team and lone working, you will demonstrate a practical understanding of professional boundaries, safeguarding, risk assessment and confidentiality.
What we would like from you:
Good IT skills, particularly the use of phone apps
Flexibility to work some weekends, evenings and bank holidays
