Demonstrating the role of walking in improving Britain’s health is a key priority for the Ramblers, and we are looking for an experienced Policy & Advocacy Officer who can help us deliver on that.

  • Work effectively with decision makers in central, devolved and local government, with experience of building and maintaining relationships with external organisations especially in the health and walking sectors.

  • Think strategically, with the ability to plan, prioritise and exercise sound political judgement.

  • Gather data from a wide range of sources, with ability to research and interpret complex information and present in variety of accurate and accessible formats.
