Waltham Forest Council has been leading the way in active and sustainable travel across London over the last few years. This is largely thanks to £27M funding from Transport for London which has allowed us to transform some of our neighbourhoods, town centres and main routes into greener, healthier, more attractive places while also making them easier, safer and more convenient to get around by foot, bike and public transport. We intend to build on this success over the next few years with a number of new exciting projects and programmes either underway or in the pipeline.

The successful candidate will be proficient in supporting a demanding engagement work programme, able to work autonomously, and will able to influence and motivate a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders to achieve the objectives of the programmes. Work will be predominantly based at Low Hall Depot with opportunities to liaise with stakeholders externally.
