Contract Length: Fixed Term until June 2015
The ‘Walk To’ Project Coordinator will be responsible for delivering Norwich’s ‘Walk to’ programme, a new partnership project which will be based in Norwich City Council’s Sports and Leisure Development team. It is also a chance to launch a new ‘walk to’ concept at Living Streets – a series of measures aimed at promoting walking across streets, workplaces and schools, as well as identifying opportunities to improve the walking environment.
The coordinator will have responsibility for one strand of the programme on the ground as well as coordinating three other strands being delivered by other partners. The project will focus on the Heartsease area, and will require an engagement strategy to reach, and then promote active travel behaviour to, people who would benefit most from increased walking.
The post holder will have to build good relationships and deliver project work of high quality, manage time and monitor the project activities and impact. They will need to show leadership to make change happen and bring a range of partners on board including community groups, project partners, city and borough council officers and health professionals.
