Life Cycle UK is growing: as interest in cycling booms in response to COVID, we are working with partners to design new projects to help make sure that disadvantaged or underrepresented groups are not excluded. Your job – as part of the fundraising team – will be to help make this support happen.
We already have an excellent track record of fundraising, a strong relationship with our existing funders, a database of potential Trusts/Foundations and an extremely supportive environment. We now seek an energetic and motivated person who can help our Development Officer grow our charity income from Trusts and Foundations.
As a key part of a small team, you will have excellent writing and editing skills – and the ability to piece together information from various sources and turn it into a convincing bid. You’ll have the ability to multi-task and work against tight deadlines. You will also have a strong work ethic, a commitment to learning and improving on an ongoing basis and be eager to make a positive difference in this world.
If that’s you … we would love to hear from you!
To enable you to raise the funds needed to help hundreds more people experience the freedoms of cycling, you will be supported by experienced staff who empower you to take on more responsibility over time. We are committed to staff’s professional development: we will help you grow and nurture your talent.
