Rider education coordinator - Hobart
Are you someone with a passion for better health and sustainable transport, who wants to see more Tasmanians ride a bike?
Are you capable of building relationships with stakeholders and managing multiple tasks?
Are you as comfortable working behind the desk as you are out in public meeting people?
Do you enjoy helping people learn new skills?
Bicycle Network believes that physical activity and sustainable transport are vital for a happy, healthy community – that’s why we make it easier for everyone to ride a bike. We are specialists in delivering rider education to school children in Tasmania and are looking forward to expanding this to adults.
We are looking for a friendly and innovative program coordinator to help us deliver the Back on Your Bike program and expansion of Ride2Uni and Ride2School. Reporting to the Ride2 Programs Manager Tasmania, you’ll play a core role in delivering projects that break down barriers to help get more people riding their bikes across Tasmania. You will work with the wider Bicycle Network team and our stakeholders to move towards a happier, healthier and less congested community.
You will need to be comfortable designing, developing and delivering projects, as well as managing and marketing small events. We need someone who is passionate about better health and active transport and is keen to understand people’s needs and help develop their skills and confidence.
This is an 18-month full-time or part-time contract, depending on your desire and skill set. Applicants who are looking for full-time employment should be willing to show an ability to increase our membership base through effective marketing and communications skills, alongside the ability to design, develop and deliver our programs within the community. The role is based in the Hobart office but will be required to travel across the state to deliver programs.
We’re looking for someone who:
• can role model Bicycle Network’s values and behaviours • cares about getting people of all backgrounds and abilities riding • is flexible and adaptable to new ways of working • is willing to develop and learn from experts, including our volunteers • is committed and honest • has an ability to juggle operations and administration • can remain calm under pressure and thrives in a challenge
