Cycling UK are passionate about enabling people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to cycle safely, easily and enjoyably. As the largest cycling charity in the UK, with the largest membership base, and a strong voice in Westminster and the devolved nations, we are well placed to continue to champion the role of cycling, cyclists, and active travel.

We have been working since 1878 to influence the world of cycling. Through our behaviour change and programme work during the past year we have helped over 150k people start or continue cycling. We are part way through a five-year strategy and are planning in the summer of 2021 to launch a refresh of this strategy to the end of 2023 recognising that much has changed, and in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We are seeking to co-opt a trustee to join our Audit and Governance Committee. We are specifically looking for a trustee with legal expertise, in particular corporate governance or charity law.

We are keen to have as diverse and inclusive a board as possible, with people coming from a wide range of backgrounds, places, and perspectives. We welcome applications from younger people and underrepresented groups in cycling including ethnic minority groups. As well as a passion for cycling, all trustees must have the essential skills, knowledge, and experience required of an effective charity trustee and be able to offer the specialist skills we need.

In return for your passion, commitment, and skills, we can offer you the chance to make a significant difference to cycling in the UK.  We want to hear from you if you think you have what it takes to put our values into action.
