British Cycling is one of the world’s most successful sports governing bodies. From winning Olympic and Paralympic gold medals to inspiring almost two million people to ride their bikes regularly, we are committed to making cycling the number one sport and activity of choice in Britain.
Could you oversee the development and implementation of an accessible, inclusive cycling events framework for the region that serves the needs of our current members, and inspires others to compete?
Can you adapt your style and approach as required to work with different delivery partners, across a portfolio of types of events that cater for the needs of a range of age groups, levels of cycling experience and ability, across gender, and in different environments?
Can you create capacity and capability in others?
Do you have skills that will contribute to the wider delivery of the North East Region Plan (see attached) as part of a small high performing team of staff and volunteers?
We have an exciting opportunity for the right person to join us as a Regional Events Officer – North East
The role is home-based, covering a large geographic area, you’ll need to be organised, flexible and positive with a ‘can do’ approach, able to prioritise and work in a fluid, evolving environment. You’ll bring both ideas and solutions, and as a do-er, you’ll make things happen. We have an urgent need to recruit, so therefore have a strong preference for someone who can hit the ground running, so you’ll either need to have great prior knowledge across the role profile, and events delivery for cycling, or the skillset to pick up any areas of development very quickly.
The role is initially on a 12 month fixed term basis due to our funding cycles, but with the aspiration for the role to be retained.
Please see the role profile for more information.
What do we offer?
As well as a company car, you will be included in the company pension plan and benefit from 23 days holiday. We also offer annual social events, an opportunity to apply for the cycle to work scheme, company perks and discount scheme.
You’ll build and sustain strong effective working relationships at all levels across British Cycling. You’ll identify areas for development and develop potential recommendations overcoming barriers and developing relationships. In return for delivering consistent results, you’ll receive the opportunity to learn and develop, as well as exciting opportunities to broaden your role and potentially move around the organisation.

We are keen to hear from candidates who feel they can excel in this role and really progress existing work in this area, as well as bringing their own ideas and solutions.
This is a profession which is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check will be required.
