Transition St Andrews is looking for an experienced community development worker to help engage residents and businesses in a programme aimed at making walking, wheeling and cycling safe and desirable for everyone in St Andrews.

Salary (Contractor): Fixed fee £6500 (inc of VAT)

Days 32.5

Completion 14th May 2021

Funded by Sustrans “Places for Everyone” programme, the St Andrews Active Travel Network project recognises that how we move about St Andrews is dictated largely by the streets and paths that cross the town. In order to change these to make travel easier, more efficient and better for health requires strong partnership, community involvement and a shared vision. The programme will provide our community with the opportunity to plan and create an active travel network for all. It will work in stages to bring people and organisations together whilst supporting research and formulating ideas before making improvements.

The St Andrews Active Travel Network project will respond to the town’s congested streets and polluted air by making walking, wheeling, cycling, and public transport the preferred modes of travel. The programme will achieve this by making walking, wheeling and cycling safer and more  desirable for everyone, transforming residential streets into more liveable neighbourhoods to improve health and wellbeing.

The worker will lead on the engagement and consultation of stakeholders, the community and local schools. They will create engaging and informative communications about the project and create website and social media content to keep our community informed and engaged in the project.

The worker will report to the Transition St Andrews Manager and work as part of a project team that includes a Path Consultant, Sustrans Officers, Communications Consultant and Website designer.

Further information and informal enquiries may be directed to Alistair Macleod, email:, Tel: 01334 464000.

Transition St Andrews is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our work and application process.
