Part time - 16 hours per week (days to be negotiated)
Millions of unwanted bicycles are sitting in garages or being thrown away in the UK, while in Africa, a four-hour daily walk is common. Mothers collect clean water, parents trek to the farm, factory or market, and children face a 20 mile walk to school and back. The charity collects unwanted bikes, parts and tools in the UK and ships them to Africa where our partners refurbish and maintain the bikes, to ensure a long life. Many teach local people to repair their own bikes, helping them to improve their lives in a sustainable way.
The successful candidate will have:
Recent experience of administration in a fast moving workplace
Good computer skills and a confident phone manner
Ability to field front line contact with the charity
Ability to work as part of a team – the role requires collaboration with both managers and peers
The post holder must be self-motivated and able to work on his/her own initiative
Up to date knowledge and experience of social media platform
