P4W Walk Manager

Full-Time - 35 hours a week

£23,000 per annum

P4W is looking to recruit a new health walks manager to take over the work from our long-time coordinator who is about to retire.

The P4W Walk service has been thoroughly reviewed over the last couple of years and we now want a new full-time health walks manager to take this important service to the next level.

P4W Walk works to create and sustain healthy communities by supporting the delivery of local, volunteer led health-walks via 17 current walking groups located in the eastern part of the Highlands. The groups walk locally each week supported by volunteers who give up their time to lead and enthuse the walkers.

We believe that by offering people the opportunity to undertake a regular, local, led walk in the company of others we can not only support individuals to safeguard their own health but, also offer social opportunities and help to break down social isolation and loneliness in a very positive and empowering way.

A key focus of health-walking is supporting people who are currently living a sedentary life into more active lifestyles - we have recently developed our work to actively support people with dementia and their carers. We have now secured funding to further encourage weekly walkers to become active travellers too by replacing regular car journeys with walking and cycling.

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated new Health-Walks Manager to lead this work which sits within the Partnerships for Wellbeing (P4W) charity based in Inverness. Working with office-based colleagues and our large team of volunteer health-walk leaders you will share your enthusiasm for active, happy, healthy lifestyles with new walkers and volunteers alike. You will engage with partners and stakeholders to support the ongoing development of health-walks and build on the work of this well-established but evolving project.
