Job description

Our activists are our lifeblood. We seek a new Network Co-ordinator (3 days/week) to support and develop our local activist groups so that we can achieve our mission of making London a cycling city. This is an exciting new post, at a critical time for London as we face the climate emergency and build a recovery from the pandemic. By raising the impact of our grassroots campaigning you will help decarbonise London’s roads and help create a healthier, more resilient and happier city.

The London Cycling Campaign has been successful in winning new, high quality cycling infrastructure in and making London’s roads safer for all. But there is still a long way to go before cycling becomes the natural choice for people of all ages and abilities. At the same time, the climate emergency and impact of Covid-19 mean it is even more urgent that transport in London becomes greener and healthier.

We need to go further, faster. Which means being even more effective advocates at the local level for decisive action by councils – who own 95% of London’s roads – to reduce car-dependency and make cycling safer and more attractive for everyone.

That’s where you come in. With expertise in providing advice, support, training and materials to grassroots campaigners, you will help grow the impact of LCC’s local groups, including by assisting them to reach out further into the community. Because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it will help deliver our vision for London, you will also help our network become more representative of London’s diversity.

Main Duties:

  • Provide advice to LCC groups on a wide range of matters
  • Manage training for LCC groups, helping to grow them and increase their effectiveness
  • Manage and develop our digital communications to groups, and share news about their activities and successes (email, social media, website, video)
  • Run gatherings of the network online, and in person when Covid-19 guidance permits
  • Develop and disseminate written guidance material
  • Generally be an advocate within the staff team for the needs and activities of groups.

Alongside other staff, the postholder will also provide support to LCC groups on LCC’s flagship Climate Safe Streets campaign, which spans the 2021 London Mayoral Election and the 2022 Borough Elections.

This is a part-time contract (3 days/week), with the potential to increase hours if funding permits. Due to Covid restrictions, the post is currently home-based. When restrictions are lifted, the postholder will be based at the LCC office near Wapping Station but with the opportunity to work flexibly. The salary is £31,377 pro rata + 8% pension contribution, with 28 days leave (pro rata).

LCC is committed to becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation, with new plans in place to help realise this. We welcome applications from all parts of the community, particularly from under-represented groups. This currently includes people with disabilities and from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups.

To apply, please click"How to Apply" and follow the link, where you will find an Application Form and Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form. These should be completed and uploaded by 9 a.m. Monday 3rd May. CVs will not be accepted.

Interviews are provisionally scheduled for Thursday 6th May. Due to the expected volume of applications we regret that we will only be able to reply to those selected for interview.
