At Cycling UK, we imagine a country where everyone is able to cycle. Where the streets are free of congestion and the air is clean to breathe. 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. 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 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.  

At this time of significant growth and expansion we have an exciting opportunity for a senior project officer to support the project management and delivery of this pioneering national pilot scheme, the nature of which demands delivery to be achieved at pace whilst hitting stretching targets. By directing key audiences to events and successful line management of a team of behaviour change officers, the successful candidate will be integral to the success of this exciting behaviour change programme.
