Volunteers play a very important role in supporting our two key functions: refurbishing bicycles and promoting cycling as a viable means of transport. Our volunteers currently support us with: bike rides, cycle training, stripping and building bikes, van driving, administration, the shop floor, and much more! We have many existing volunteer opportunities, and are also open to creating roles for people who bring unique skills to Bike for Good.
We are happy to support people who want to apply their skills and people who would like to learn new things. We welcome job seekers, people who just want to do something different, and people who simply want to spend time with others who love bikes and the environment. All volunteers receive training and development opportunities and can move into different volunteer roles within the organisation.
We understand that the success of the Bike for Good depends on our people. We are committed to valuing diversity and promoting equality for everyone at Bike for Good. Competent and motivated volunteers and staff are essential to the success of the organisation and we recognise the varied contributions that a diverse workforce brings to the organisation.
As women and people of colour are generally underrepresented in the cycling industry, we particularly welcome applications from them.
Please note, you need to be at least 16 years of age to volunteer with us. If you are interested in volunteering for us please fill out our volunteer application form. If you have questions or would like help to apply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on 07514 789068 (Tues-Fri 9-4pm). You can also text or send a message through Whatsapp and we’ll get back to you.
We thank our funders Henry Smith, Glasgow City Council, Bank of Scotland. Agnes Hunter Trust, and the National Lottery Community Fund – Improving Lives for enabling us to offer a higher level of support and training to volunteers who are furthest from the job market.
