Job Description

We are working to inspire more people to walk and wheel more often, further, and for more purposes by creating a new national walking network. Collaborating with others is at the heart of what we do. 

As a visionary community-interest-company Slow Ways has received 7 years of funding from the Lottery Fund, to create transformational change across an ecosystem. 

Our dynamic core team of 8 together with tens of thousands of contributors and supporters are spread across England, Scotland and Wales. 

We are growing a large assemblage of groups and organisations that share our ambitions and will be reinvigorating our sounding board. 

We are looking for someone who can help us assemble, nurture and galvanise a  large ecosystem of groups, organisations, networks, movements, authorities, and governments that share our aims. 

We are especially keen to receive applications from people who have experience in the sport, outdoors, or health sectors. We also want to hear from people who have lived experience, or experience of working with/for marginalised and minoritised groups.

This is a hybrid-working role. You will be expected to work at least one day a week in our Exeter hub, with bi-monthly meetings taking place in different locations across Great Britain. Exeter is one hour by train from Bristol and Plymouth.

You will be responsible for:

- Growing an assemblage and ecosystem of groups, organisations, and governments to support our aims. 

- Nurturing our relationships with other organisations.

- Developing and delivering a relationships, connections, and partnerships strategy. 

- Designing and project managing initiatives that are developed with partners. 

- Creating, maintaining, and evaluating a database of our relationships. 

- Identifying and generating additional income streams. 

- Key performance indicators that demonstrate the value of our connections. 

- Managing reporting to key funders, including the National Lottery. 

 

Desirable skills include your ability to:

- Grow, foster, and maintain a professional community/network of groups, charities, businesses, local authorities, and government departments. 

- Care for Slow Ways users and future users. 

- Remember names, pick up the phone and talk to people. 

- Manage and grow an effective team. 

- Understand and respond to government policy opportunities.

- Deliver campaigns and initiatives through partnership working. 

- Fundraise and report to funders. 

- Manage projects and budgets.

- Speak another language. 

- Think large scale and long term.
