Current vacancies

Top job! Campaigns and Policy Manager Scotland

  • Full time
  • £30,000
  • Based in Scotland working remotely
  • Closing 25th March 2019

This post is a full time 1 year fixed term contract with potential to extend.

Cycling UK is a UK wide cycling charity. We campaign across the four nations and locally for safe and attractive cycling conditions, as well as promoting cycling in all its forms for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities through our local volunteer groups and nationally co-ordinated projects.

Collaborative campaigning by active travel groups including Cycling UK, through the Walk Cycle Vote campaign, has already led the Scottish Government to double its spending on active travel. To encourage and support people to get riding, Cycling UK also has a well- established development officer team who work across a range of different projects in local communities.

The Campaigns and Policy Manager is a new role intended to build on the engagement and influencing already undertaken in Scotland. The successful candidate will be expected to lead on Cycling UK’s campaigning and policy work in Scotland, reporting to Cycling UK’s Head of Campaigns and Advocacy. For campaigns this will require collaborative work with partner organisations and campaign groups/volunteers, liaising closely with other Cycling UK staff working in Scotland. For policy work this will require similar collaboration and liaison, plus engagement with Cycling UK’s Associate Director of Policy. For both policy and campaigns, the role will require landscape planning to scope and identify future opportunities and priorities for campaigning, lobbying, engagement and policy influencing.

The post requires excellent written, interpersonal and communications skills, with the ability to engage various audiences and understand policy issues. If you’ve got the political nous, people and campaigning skills, and the enthusiasm to champion cycling to get more people cycling then we want to hear from you.
