Opportunities for graduates to become Cycle Officers.
5th July 2018
We are pleased to open applications for this year’s Cycle Friendly Campus Internship programme.
What is the programme ?
In partnership with Bright Green Business, we are recruiting interns to support campus-based cycling development projects across 18 further and higher education campuses throughout Scotland.
What will I do?
The role of Campus Cycling Officer (CCO) is to support the Sustainability, Health & Wellbeing, Estates team and/or the Students Association (or other relevant department) in delivering cycling projects and activities aimed at encouraging staff and students to travel by bike. Candidates will work towards achieving/maintaining the Cycle Friendly Campus Award for their campus.
Successful examples of activities run by previous CCOs include:
- setting up a cycling hub
- organising events aimed to increase confidence and build capacity among students and staff
- writing strategy documents on behalf of the college/university
- seeking external funding to develop the campus’ cycling infrastructure
- continuing/building resilient partnerships with local and regional industry players.
In additional to providing invaluable support to colleges and universities in achieving their sustainable travel aims, this is a rare opportunity to develop your skills, knowledge and network in a competitive industry. Over half of previous participants in theour programme have secured work in the sustainability and active travel industry.
