We are recruiting for a number of our Wheels for All and Pedal Away programmes.
We want to recruit people who are keen, energetic, dedicated and show an eagerness to work with inactive people of all abilities and to give them the opportunity to cycle through our two community cycling initiatives Pedal Away and Wheels for All.
In particularly we are keen to recruit people to support our programmes in the Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire regions.
The success of our community programmes rely on the support of sessional workers and volunteers. A broad range of skills and experience is important when engaging with new people or returning cyclist to Pedal Away and Wheels for All.
As the season ramps up with more activities through the spring and the summer we are looking for sessional workers to support Pedal Away rides and Wheels for All activities. There is a lot of flexibility with the hours of work and often we can fit around your availability. Some sessional workers work in specific areas and some for a set number of hours – its purely down to what is a available and what works for you..
Training and Support
We can support you with an induction package and the necessary training and we actively encourage that you experience existing Pedal Away and Wheels for All activities before you begin.

The work Cycling Projects does across Merseyside is done with varying partners but we would love to keep growing, and we are looking to raise the profile of Cycling Projects, as well showcasing the achievements thus far across Merseyside.

Recently Wheels for All worked in partnership with the Wiltshire Sports engagement team to bring inclusive cycling to children, adults and the elderly. Wheels for All was welcomed by Salisbury communities and the day was a complete success with many children trying out cycling for the first time with some great feedback ” We want to come back again” and “I’ve had an amazing time”.
A big thank you goes out to Exeter House Special School and Manor Fields primary School and also The Meadows Day Centre who all got involved in the Wheels for All event and left with big smiles on their faces!!
The aim is to make Salisbury Five Rivers Leisure Centre a Wheels for All centre offering cycling for all abilities on a regular basis. The will begin with a season of Wheels for All activities from April 2017.
We realise Wiltshire has been represented in term s of a complete cycling offer and so it is great to have the support and dedication of the disability sports team to make this happen for South Wiltshire
