Our mission is simple, to get refugees cycling! We are a community of refugees, mechanics, staff and volunteers. We collect donations of second-hand bikes, fix them together at our workshop, and then donate them to asylum seeking refugees. A proportion of the bikes that we receive are sold through our online shop to generate funds, the proceeds of which support The Bike Project, and ensure our long-term sustainability.
There are approximately 13,500 asylum seekers that flee to London each year and almost 27,500 bikes are abandoned in the same period. Our mission is to match the two.
The Bike Project is going through a significant period of growth, turning over £1.5 million in 2020. We are expanding the delivery of bike donations, Pedal Power and Bike Buddies whilst developing our retail arm, The Bike Shop. We are looking for a Digital Marketing Manager to work closely with the wider marketing and fundraising team to deliver digital marketing campaigns across brand and fundraising. You will work across paid and organic social, website and email as well as having the chance to work on brand campaigns, including films and shoots. If you’re seeking a varied role in a fast growing charity, this is the perfect role for you. In this pack you will find more information about the role and the benefits we offer.
To apply, please send your CV by 30th July 2021, together with a cover letter that addresses the following questions. All applications must include a cover letter. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
Tell us about your experience running paid digital marketing campaigns. You can touch on social media, email or search. What did you do and how did you measure success? What interests you about using this experience at the Bike Project?
Describe a time you had to deal with a variety of stakeholders across different departments. How did you influence and bring others on a journey with you?
Please also tell us why you are interested in the refugee sector (include any challenges you have had to overcome in your own life which you feel are relevant)
We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled, and Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and those who have personal experience of being a refugee.
