About The Bike Project
Our mission is simple, to get refugees cycling! We are a community of 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. A small proportion of the bikes that we receive are sold through our online shop to generate funds, the proceeds of which support The Bike Project, and ensure our long-term sustainability.
There are approximately 13,500 asylum seekers that flee to London each year and almost 27,500 bikes are abandoned in the same period. Our mission is to match the two.
The Bike Project is going through a significant period of growth. This new full time position is required to support the team to as we grow, including expanding the delivery of bike donations, Pedal Power and Bike Buddies whilst developing our retail arm, The Bike Shop. We are looking for someone who will help us pursue this mission and sustain our commitment to support refugees.
The Bike Project is an interesting and supportive place for you to grow and professionally develop in the charity and social enterprise sector. You will report to the Operations Manager and your role will have a high level of autonomy as you bring your expertise in administration to our already highly specialised team.
We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled, and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and those who have personal experience of being a refugee. The Bike Project is a Living Wage accredited employer.
