Operations Manager – Inclusive Cycling
Wheels for Wellbeing is the only inclusive cycling organisation run by and for Disabled cyclists. We have been supporting Disabled people to discover cycling for leisure, health improvement and transport since 2007. We work tirelessly at local, regional and national level to spread our unique understanding of the barriers and solutions to accessing active travel. Our approach is optimistic, dynamic and flexible, supporting others to ensure that cycling services, infrastructure and facilities are attractive and accessible to Disabled people, older cyclists, people cycling with children, cargo cyclists etc.
All our work stems from the diverse lived experience of our members, trustees, staff & volunteers. Difference is what makes us who we are and what makes us strong. It is what others value in our approach. We trust and hope you will bring yet new perspectives. Wheels for Wellbeing recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome job applications for people of all backgrounds.
