Project Manager, Tower Hamlets
We are looking for a part-time Project Manager for a short-term six month contract based in Bow, Tower Hamlets.
The Project Manager will lead on the delivery of cycling activities for women in Bow as part of a wider active travel campaign aiming to break down barriers to cycling for women, working in collaboration with project partners Hubbub and Bromley-by-Bow Centre (BBBC). The campaign is aiming to particularly target Muslim women while being inclusive of all women who may face barriers to cycling.
The contract will involve primarily setting up and running a new Cycle Sisters group with regular weekly social group rides as well as delivering other cycling activities (to be confirmed - e.g. coordinating cycle training or organising bike maintenance workshops). The aim of the six month campaign is not only to support local women to learn to cycle or cycle more confidently, but also to create a strong legacy though building a sustainable volunteer-run women’s cycle group and encouraging others across the borough and beyond to take up cycling through media and social media initiatives.
Please see the full role description here.
The deadline for applications is Sunday 18th October 2020.
Interviews will be week beginning 19th October 2020 and we are looking for someone who is ideally able to start immediately.
“Cycle Sisters has made a visible difference - there are noticeably more Muslim women on bikes
which challenges stereotypes and therefore has a wider impact”
