Job description

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 Programme Manager to manage and deliver Pedal Power, a bespoke cycle training programme for female refugees.

In the job pack you will find more information about the role and the benefits we offer.

To apply, please send your CV by 15/07/2021, together with a cover letter that addresses the following questions:

Tell us about your experience. What interests you about using this experience at the Bike Project?

Describe a programme you have managed that you are proud of. What did you do and what was the result?

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)

This role is only open to female applicants.

We particularly encourage applications from female Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and those who have personal experience of being a refugee.

Thank you for your interest in the Bike Project and best of luck with your application
