Our mission is simple: to get New Scots (refugees/asylum seekers) cycling! We are a community of cyclists, New Scots, mechanics, volunteers and people passionate about community development and making a difference. We collect donations of second-hand bikes, fix them together at our workshop/s, and then gift them to New Scots alongside resources, support and signposting. We have gifted over 1,000 bikes to date. A proportion of the bikes that we receive are sold to the public to generate income for the charity and ensure our long-term sustainability - this and trading more generally is an area that we wish to grow and develop.
This position is required to coordinate our service delivery as we grow bike donations, distributions, income activities and sales. We are looking for someone who can help us to promote our values, deliver our charitable aims, explore new and safe ways of working post-covid, and sustain our commitment to support New Scots.
Bikes for Refugees (Scotland) is a charity going through a period of growth and transition as we address increased demand for our services and explore new ways of working and delivering our activities within the context of Covid-19. This will be an essential part of the role- our workshops In Glasgow and Edinburgh have been temporarily suspended since lockdown due to coronavirus risk whilst our waiting list for bikes has continued to grow. In Glasgow we will be seeking to identify new and larger premises (funding dependent) that enable us to deliver our activities whilst we keep staff, volunteers and service users safe. You will have a lead role in supporting this transition and identifying and implementing new and creative ways to get New Scots cycling.
This role is responsible for coordinating and managing service delivery for Bikes for Refugees (Scotland) and its two community Hubs in the West and East of Scotland. Supported by the board of directors you will work on a variety of projects including volunteer support and coordination; bike collections, repairs and distributions, and special projects and activities. The post holder will be expected to maintain a good working knowledge of Bikes for Refugees (Scotland) programmes, policies and procedures, and maintain good working relationships with a variety of external stakeholders and partners.
If you are passionate about bikes and cycling and have an interest in community development and supporting vulnerable groups, then this could be the job for you.

Please note that this post will require travel throughout the West of Scotland, therefore the base is negotiable.
