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 Fundraising Executive to deliver friendly and regular stewardship for The Bike Project’s donors and fundraisers, with excellent customer service.
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 or they will not be considered.

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.
