Living Streets is a robust, dynamic and growing organisation, with a proud history of campaigning for a better walking environment whilst delivering a range of highly effective, award winning, groundbreaking services that achieve real change.
We are a nationwide charity governed by our volunteer trustees with a wide network of members, local groups and supporters. With our tens of thousands of supporters, we campaign for better public policies. Our walk to school challenge reaches children in over 3,500 schools and we also provide expert advice to local authorities and businesses to help improve streets and public spaces.
The general election in 2019 saw all major parties commit to increase investment for walking and cycling. Our ambition to scale up and have more impact, grows, as evidence continues to mount for the need to travel more sustainably; both for our health and for the planet, in a time when we are facing a climate emergency and mounting public health challenges.
Our current Chief Executive, Joe Irvin OBE – who has enabled the organisation to flourish, grow and succeed over the past few years – steps down from the role in May 2020. We are now seeking an individual who has the passion to grasp and act upon our full potential, taking an exceptional organisation to an even higher level.
This is an exciting role at a time of significant opportunities that will give challenge and reward in equal measure. To read the appointment brief for more information and how to apply please CLICK HERE
