About the role
Our I Bike Officer role is an exciting opportunity for you to influence change in the way children and families travel across Aberdeen, embedding active, sustainable travel into their everyday lives, in turn making people healthier and happier.
You will develop and deliver cycling and walking activities, training and host events in the community for adults that enthusiastically promote active travel, partnering with cycle trainers, bike mechanics and others in and around Aberdeen. The audience can be adults, parents, carers linked to I Bike Schools and members of the wider community.

Some travel is expected in this role. The remainder of the time, you will be working from home. A PVG check is required due to the nature of the role as you will work with children and vulnerable adults on occasion.
We work collaboratively, so building effective working relationships with community organisations, workplaces and those promoting cycling is key to being successful in the role.
