Background

The Bike Project is a refugee charity going through a significant period of growth as we address increased demand for our services and our social enterprise. This part time position is required to manage the service delivery of Pedal Power, our programme of cycle training for refugee women.

About The Bike Project

Our mission is simple: to get refugees cycling! We are a community of cyclists, refugees, mechanics and volunteers. We collect donations of second-hand bikes, fix them together at our workshop, and then donate them to asylum seeking refugees in the UK. We have donated nearly 5,500 bikes to date. A proportion of the bikes that we receive are sold to the public through our online shop to generate income for the charity and ensure our long-term sustainability.
