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 nearly 8,000 routes that stretch for over 120,000km. 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.

New Paths, Ways and Possibilities Coordinator

Join us as the New Paths, Ways and Possibilities Coordinator at Slow Ways, a new online project that will enable people to suggest, map and discuss routes they would like to be able to travel – but can’t because something is in the way. We’re seeking a skilled and passionate coordinator to lead a groundbreaking project in Scotland. With funding from Paths for All’s Smarter Choices, Smarter Places Open Fund, we’re developing an online platform where individuals can suggest, map, and discuss routes that are currently inaccessible or obstructed. Your role will involve spearheading project interactions, collaborating with technologists, coordinating forums, advocating for inclusivity, and managing a community of contributors. If you’re a positive, proactive, and forward-thinking individual with a passion for championing new paths and possibilities, we want to hear from you. Join our flexible, hybrid, and part-time contract role to make a lasting impact on Scotland’s walking and wheeling community.

Apply by 14th June, on Be Applied. Any questions please email our Chief Technologist.
