Paths for All is a Scottish Charity. We have a clear focus. We want to get Scotland walking: Everyone. Everyday. Everywhere. Our vision is for Scotland to be a walking nation. We want everyone to have the opportunity to be active every day, creating a happier, healthier and greener Scotland. A key element of this work involves encouraging behaviour change and participation in daily activity through the right programmes, infrastructure and community opportunities.

This exciting and impactful role will involve working in partnership with a high school and cluster primary schools to develop and roll out a high-quality programme of training, tailored resources, innovative walking initiatives and evaluations whilst working in collaboration with the staff, children and young people in the schools.

Based regionally the development officer will work with designated secondary schools and corresponding primary clusters, spending much of their time providing a direct link for staff and pupils. The first task, supported by the Schools SDO will be delivering a School assessment in each school before developing a programme of interventions based on the barriers identified within the initial assessment. It is expected that the first half of the year the focus will be on initially building relationships with the schools and carrying out the assessment before delivering targeted interventions in the seconds half of the year.

If you’re looking for a new challenge in a varied role, and you’re interested in supporting communities to thrive and reducing health inequalities and working towards net-zero, we’d love to hear from you.

We offer the opportunity to be part of an organisation that recognises staff as our most valued asset. Attractive employment conditions include a contributory pension scheme and flexi-time policy.
