    Opportunity


    About this opportunity: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.
