  • Board/trustee role


Description

Bikeworks is looking for an enthusiastic, positive individual(s) with a passion for cycling and sustainability to enable the Board to take Bikeworks to the next level.

Bikeworks is based in Glenrothes and is involved in recycling/refurbishing donated bicycles and selling these at affordable prices to the least affluent in our community, whilst providing training to people with disabilities and long-term unemployment.

Bikeworks attracts volunteers from all walks of life and prides itself on being an inclusive organisation – a great environment for a new Board member to flourish and know that they are making a difference.

This is a real opportunity to make a difference to the environment and those individuals / groups who ordinarily would not have access to the benefits of cycling. As a Board Member you will have the opportunity to shape the strategy Bikeworks follows by participating in a forum that is open to new ideas, with the common goal to continue its success as a community-based charity run with a professional business-like approach.

Organisation aims and objectives

Bikeworks is a registered charity based in Glenrothes which is involved in recycling/refurbishing donated bicycles and selling these at affordable prices to the lleast affluent in our community. In doing so we provide training to people with disabilities and to the long-term unemployed. Our aims are to provide training and support to the above disadvantaged groups while advancing the "Green"agenda by reducing the need for landfill and by advancing the use of cycling as a means of reducing car travel. In the past 12 months we have diverted approx 50 tons from landfill and this is set to increase in that we are now working in partnership with Fife Council Re-cycling Services.
