Angus Cycle Hub encourage people to live healthier lives and reduce car journeys and CO2 emissions through cycling and recycling.
We run two community based projects based in Arbroath and Dundee, Scotland.
We are committed to our community and want them involved in everything we do at Cycle Hub which is why we love volunteers! We have a variety of roles of varying lengths of commitment time. Whatever your background, identity or ability, there’s a volunteer spot with your name on it.
We have a list of volunteer roles you can choose from, but we are ultimately flexible around you and your available time commitment, experience, interests and goals. We want to make sure we find something that fits you best and offers opportunity for growth, development and progression with us. In the past, our volunteers have supported us at our events, in our shops and workshops, and with our Bikeability program in schools.
Our dedicated team of Volunteer Workshop Mechanics collect bikes left at Recycling Centres in Angus and bring them back to our HQ in Arbroath to upcycle and fix so they can be delivered to children in need throughout Angus and Dundee. This is an excellent role for anyone who wishes to be involved in a hands on role and is by far the most popular of our volunteer roles at the Cycle Hub. You will be supported by our Velotech trained mechanics and be granted an unlimited opportunity to learn about bikes or hone your already existing skills.
You will be supported by our head Recycles mechanic, Jason, and an assigned mentor at our Arbroath basewhere you can work towards various individually set goals.
Once you have completed our Recycles Volunteer Project you will have the opportunity to gain a SQA certified qualification/Velotech qualification. You can either do this within the Recycles Project or branch out and get involved elsewhere, for instance: shop servicing, Dr Bike events and our Maintenance Sessions.

Make a difference and feel good!

Tayside Re-Users try their best to avoid ditching furniture in landfill. Some of the household goods we receive require upholstering to make them suitable for resale in our shop. We have a dedicated area for upholstery but the ideal volunteer would be looking to develop their existing upholstery skills.
As an environmental charity, we aim to keep as much as we can out of landfill. One of our main areas of work is recycling electrical goods. This involves recording incoming goods, cleaning and repair and PAT Testing. This role would suit someone who is familiar with the workings of white goods and able to carry out repairs. If you are interested in a diverse role which can help the community, this one is for you!
As an environmental charity we aim to keep as much as we can out of landfill. One of our main areas is texttiles. As a Textile Assistant you will be involved in sorting out textiles then preparing them for resale which includes ironing and pricing. This role does not involve dealing with the public but you should have the ability to work well as part of a team.
Some donations which Tayside Re-users receive are not suitable for restoring to their original condition and these are upcycled into something new instead. For this, Tayside Re-users need a Paint Sprayer. This will involve using our spray booth and spray equipment to upcycle household goods and furniture. This opportunity would suit someone who is considering a trade as a career. Paint spraying experience is preferred but basic training can be given.
