Recyke Y’Bike is looking for a new General Manager

Recyke y’bike – Charity, Social Enterprise and Community Interest Company

Main Office – Byker, Newcastle upon Tyne

Job Purpose: To manage the operation and development of Recyke Y’Bike in line with its business plan, while maintaining its ethos and environmental vision.

This is an opportunity for a committed manager to build on our recent achievements and help Trustees steer the charity through a crucial and exciting period in its development.

Recyke y’ bike is a highly successful charity and social enterprise which has grown steadily over its 10 years of operation to play a key role in sustainable transport in the North East of England. It has a mission to get people cycling safely and skilfully on re-used bicycles.

Our team of 8 trained mechanics and 40+ volunteers fix up bikes donated by the public for resale. Most are sold at affordable prices to the public in our three retail outlets in Byker, Newcastle City Centre and in Durham.

Bike sales raise funds for charitable purposes, enable our operation and also finance the donation of bikes to low income groups of people including through international partner projects in Africa.

Here at Recyke Y’Bike we’re a mixed bunch – with volunteers of all ages, across all walks of life, and ten part-time members of staff. But there are three passions we all share….cycling, recycling and BIKES!

Please see www.recykeybike.org for an application form and further information for applicants.

Closing date for applications 5.00pm 27th March 2016.
