Are you passionate about working for a charity delivering real change?

Cycling UK, the national cycling charity, is on a mission to inspire a million more people onto their bikes. We’re not about winning medals, but about helping people who will benefit from cycling the most, whether that’s a refugee who never learned to cycle or people suffering from mental or physical illnesses who require a hand on their road to recovery.

We run Bike Week, the annual Women’s Festival of Cycling and inspire around 60,000 people every year to overcome the barriers stopping them cycling through our Big Bike Revival programme. We’re also making cycling safer through our campaigning work, lobbying Government to spend more money on infrastructure and educating drivers on sharing the roads safely. 

We’re looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic Digital Communications and Media Officer to generate exciting and creative new content for our website and social media channels.

You’ll be commissioning, writing and uploading content, producing creative and eye-catching ideas for our social media channels and working closely with our video production team on exciting, new films capturing the excellent work of the charity.

We need someone brimming with ideas who can also support our wider communications team in researching and writing up case studies and deputising for the Digital and Content Manager running the website.

If you’re a committed communicator who’s passionate about their work, we want to hear from you.

To be successful you’ll need:

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent qualification / experience
  • Experience of voluntary and/or political campaigning, or working in the voluntary sector organisation, social enterprises or the media
  • Excellent communication skills
  • High levels of computer literacy to include MS Office, PowerPoint, internet and databases
  • Project management and time management skills.
  • Thorough, analytical, able to extract and use evidence from internal and external sources to generate insight
  • Self-motivated, enthusiastic, determined, organised, with a flexible hands on approach to work
  • High levels of initiative but with the ability to work as part of a team
