The following values underpin our activity as an organisation:

· People first- Investing in our team to ensure we can provide tailored support where it is needed most.

· Enabling – Delivering activity in a way that is practical, easy to understand and accessible to everyone.

Our strategic approach reflects our ambition as an organisation and recognises the role third sector will perform in delivering national outcomes at a local and regional level.

FEL is working in partnership with bike sharing company Bewegen Technologies to establish the UK’s first cross regional electric bicycle scheme. Bewegen is a Canadian company that has created an innovative bike share system featuring world-class electric-assist bicycle technology.

About the Role

Working as part of FEL’s Active Travel team, you will work closely with key local stakeholders to deliver, promote and support Forth Bike, the public e-bike share provision and its development in Forth Valley and more widely. You will take a lead on developing the Forth Bike promotion and marketing program, working closely with the service provider, Bewegen, and its subsidiary WeGoShare. You will ensure the scheme operates effectively, providing the best possible service for stakeholders and the public.

In line with Scottish Government’s Active Travel ambition to ‘subsidise bike hire for jobseekers, modern apprentices, young people and students’, you will also increase access to and participation in the scheme by leading initiatives to secure corporate memberships and introducing e-bike share access/subsidy for harder to reach or disadvantaged groups.

As part of FEL’s Active Travel team you will support the work of Stirling and Falkirk Active Travel Hubs providing cycle and walking-related information and referral services to the public as well as planning and delivering outreach activities.
