Closing date: 
Sunday, 3 July, 2022

 

Location: Luton & Dunstable

Salary: £24,840 – £27,600 per annum

Contract: Full-time, fixed term contact until 31 March 2023 with potential to extend subject to funding

Cycling UK is undergoing an exciting time of significant growth and expansion and we are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated behaviour change officer to enable the success of our e-cycle behaviour change programme in Luton & Dunstable. Cycling Made E-asy is an exciting new scheme funded by the Department for Transport and run by Cycling UK and partners to get more people cycling.

Delivering events within the community or workplaces, this engaging role will be ensuring beneficiaries are supported and signposted to opportunities driving the uptake in e-cycle use. Delivering activities such as ‘try and ride’ sessions or long-term e-cycles loans from top brands such as Raleigh, Specialized, Islabikes, Brompton and many more, this programme really will help to make e-cycling a regular part of daily life.  

As a key local contact across a network of stakeholders, you will be integral to enabling communities to cycle in an inclusive way, creating impactful change. Creative and confident, you must be able to set your own priorities and deliver these within tight timescales. First-hand experience in engaging and working with community-based organisations, social enterprises, the voluntary sector, or statutory public services will be beneficial.

As the UK’s cycling charity, we inspire more people to ride, making our streets safer for cyclists and opening up traffic-free routes to reach our vision of millions more people cycling across the UK. Cycling UK’s extensive experience of engaging with people from all walks of life means we recognise the barriers, challenges and perceptions that can deter people from trying cycling, and we are about to embark on an innovative new programme for people who might not normally consider riding a bike. 

If you have the qualities, skills, and experience to fulfil this vital role, and would like to help drive the e-cycle programme, tell us!
