In this role you will focus your energy on developing and delivering the Regional Delivery Strategy through the creation of a region-specific Regional Delivery Plan, focusing on the highest participation growth & revenue opportunities. There will be a combination of working with the local authorities, partnerships, regional volunteers and of course our members and non-members to support the delivery of mass participation events while continuing to serve the sport through cycle sport, clubs, groups and coaching programmes.

You will work with the functions based at our Manchester-based headquarters to determine the regional targets, the investment requirements and timelines to help move the regions towards our goal of making Britain a great cycling nation. You will be expected to support the delivery of:

  • Experience in sport - experience of working in sport administration and governance in a predominantly volunteer led environment. If you haven’t but have been a volunteer yourself and know what it takes to keep people coming back for more, then we’d like to hear your story.
  • Understanding of governance - A good understanding of the political nature of a constitutional based National Governing Body – i.e. the role of a board in support of activities of a region. It may not be in cycling, it may not be in sport, but knowledge of how to work collaboratively with a board is key to this role.
  • Reliable and demonstrable record of driving recreation and sports participation growth/service delivery.
  • To be passionate, motivational manager with a proven track record of developing a remote team and nurturing talent whilst giving people the freedom to succeed and grow to successfully achieve target and KPIs
  • Well-developed communication and interpersonal skills from a person who can quickly establish credibility, positively influence others and win the respect and co-operation of colleagues at all levels.
