RideWise is a charity that is dedicated to supporting and enabling the use of sustainable forms of transport. We are a registered charity and work tirelessly to support the communities and businesses that we serve. 

Established over 16 years ago, the charity supports thousands of people each year to improve their travel choices; which includes the provision of cycle training services, training to professional drivers, the delivery of community based green transport services and products as well as bespoke specialist support for groups or individuals with additional needs. 

We are seeking support to help us to identify, prepare and develop bid and grant applications which would enable us to achieve our mission of inspiring people and organisations to make green transport choices. 

We have a strong history of securing funding (local authority / government / third sector) and in delivering over and above expectations on our contracts. We're seeking someone either with experience or with some experience who is willing to learn. 

Desirable skills that we are looking for include:

  • Previous experience in a research / bid writing / fundraising role (this is not essential but if you have no experience, a willingness / ability to learn quickly is a must)
  • Strong research skills
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to adapt tone to suit different audiences
  • Well organised and excellent attention to detail
  • IT literate
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a small team, to use initiative and to meet deadlines

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email contact Helen Hemstock (see above for contact details) for an informal chat.
