Cycling UK

Commercial Director

Job Reference YAKAJB
Closing Date Wednesday 02 Nov 2022

Location: Flexible

Salary: £73,000 – £82,000

Cycling UK’s mission is to inspire millions more people to cycle.

Founded more than 140 years ago as the Cyclists’ Touring Club, today we are a registered charity and we work at a national and local level across all four nations of the UK to inspire and enable many more people to cycle, to lobby for cyclists’ needs and provide services to members.

In recent years we have gone from strength to strength. We have grown significantly and over the last year we reached more people than we have ever done before. We are now nearing the end of our current strategy and are on target to achieve many of our aims. In the next 12 months we will develop a new strategy and review our mission to ensure that our work remains relevant and impactful in the coming years.

As we look ahead to the development of the 2024 strategic plan, we are looking for a Commercial Director who will play a key role in helping to shape and achieve our ambitions for the future. Building our sources of income will be a key element in our new strategy and this role has been created to lead all income generation activity across Cycling UK. Leading and inspiring a high-performing team, the Commercial Director will have functional responsibility across membership services, business and new product development, corporate and commercial partnerships and fundraising, including individual giving and major donors.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding leader who brings energy and ambition to our team and can make a wide-ranging and significant impact across our work. You may come from a range of backgrounds, but will have a strong track record you can point to of income generation and delivering results. Although it is not necessary to have non-profit experience, a good understanding of the sector is important to this role.

Cycling UK recognises the enormous benefits of a diverse organisation and actively and warmly encourages applications from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
