At The Bike Project we provide an innovative solution to one of the most pressing problems facing asylum seekers and refugees on arrival to the UK: access to transport when living on a limited income.
Our mission is simple: each year we match refugees and asylum seekers with the many thousands of bikes that go abandoned or unloved around the country. We then go on to support these new bike owners to realise the emotional, practical and physical benefits of cycling. 9 years since that first bike donation, we are about to donate our 10,000th bike and have expanded the project to include multiple programs, from refugee befriending services to women-only cycling classes.
We have supported tens of thousands of refugees to get access to bikes, learn to cycle and created a community of colleagues, refugees, volunteers and supporters. And we’ve grown rapidly in the last few years, from £720k turnover in 2018, to £2.3m turnover in 2021 and employing almost 40 staff. Despite our success, this is just the start and we are looking for a CEO who will continue to lead The Bike Project on to even greater things!
Please note that although the position is predominatly remote, with no requirement to work from the office, the nature of the role involves attending regular face to face activities and site visits around London. These vary in frequency but can be several times per week.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
