Job Description




We are looking for someone to lead the cycling safety & competence development element of a new and unique cycling social enterprise that has a total focus on delivering innovative solutions to the last remaining resistant demographics in the community, to fully enable their participation and enjoyment of cycling, on their terms.

We focus on inspiring wider cycling usage, from those who wouldn't ordinarily consider themselves cyclists, through novel solutions not yet seen before, predominantly via community hire. We are the opposite end of performance cycling (although we respect this element!) 

Based in north London we will use cycling as a tool to tackle social and environmental challenges across London suburbs and the surrounding areas.

We will leave no one behind in our push for greater cycling accessibility to address the inequalities being experienced by those most likely to be left behind, with a focus on wellbeing outcomes for all. We also have environmental objectives woven into the core fabric all our activity.

The role will work alongside other starters as a new business, and will have the opportunity to expand the brief rapidly during this first stage of growth for the new business.

We need someone who is passionate about delivering a new cycling community-interest company, for the good of the wider local community and its residents.

Ultimately we want to establish a netwowrk of club service centres embedded in local communities to serve as many ordinary residents of London's suburbs as possible. This is the ambition.


Instrutor Duties will be ordinarily required to include (in order of likely magnitude):


· Led 1-2-1 Instructor Rides within traffic-free route for local residents beginning their journeys into cycling 

· Led Small Group Instructor Rides within traffic-free route for local residents beginning their journeys into cycling 

· Limited bespoke courier and community asset transportation between hub/ practice sites. Opportunity to takeup an ethical courier element to role.


Alongside these instructor tasks, we will also offer basic mechanic-related tasks, to include:

· Build and check new bikes ready for inclusion in community fleet.

· Refurbish traded-in bikes for inclusion in fleet.

· Service and repair customers’ bikes.

· Maintain a clean, safe and tidy workshop.


Hours of working & Shifts per week 

Initially we are looking for someone temporary on part time basis, working shifts between Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.

There may be opportunities for more days and flexibility as we grow.

Pay is negotiable and best of all you get to be part of a unique project which we hope will deliver unique impact for the local area & wider community. We hope that growth in our services will provide with opportunities to help in other parts of the business.

Job Type: Temporary to start, with intention for FT in the long-term inline with and depending on realising planned business growth
