Vacancies and opportunities at Slow Ways

What if there was a network of walking routes that connected all of Great Britain’s towns and cities? That’s what we are making. Want to help us?

Slow Ways is an initiative to create a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities as well as thousands of villages. Ultimately we want to inspire and support more people to walk and wheel, more often, further and for more purposes. 

We’ve made a great start. So far volunteers have created over 9,000 routes that stretch for over 130,000km. Our current phase of work is focussed on engaging people from across Great Britain to walk, review and survey all these routes.

Want to join us? Great! All of our current vacancies are detailed below and they will always be advertised here first.


Social Media and Community Support Manager

Part-time, three days per week (flexible hours, remote)
£25-30k FTE, depending on experience (0.6)
Applications close 8th July


Might you be the person to amplify our social media presence and engage with our online community? Be the voice of Slow Ways on various social platforms, create compelling content, interact with our followers, and grow our online influence?


Your secondary focus (although just as important!) will be on customer support. You will be the first port of call for Slow Ways’ volunteers, contributors, and first-time visitors. With your confident, friendly, and empathic approach you will help address questions, technical issues, and requests for help.


Does this sound like you? We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have lived experience or experience working with/for marginalised and minoritised groups.
