  • so that's what you meant when you said "roger that" today.

  • 10-4 Big Daddy.

  • ^You can make any job sound soulless. I think the job of a cycling instructor is the best job in the world. Here is a job description:

    "Train cyclists to national standard trainee outcomes delivering training with minimum Risk. Keep accurate paperwork records of trainee progress including on and off road risk assessments. Deliver level 1 and level 2 outputs within the requisite time. Candidates will be trained to NSI(P) status, have excellent communication skills be able to motivate young people and have the basic maintenance skills.

    Sounds soulless no?

    I guess so, at least it doesn't say "Deploying" and "KPI". I'm sure Liz et al will find and appoint a really good Operations Manager, and am sure the wording (and TLA) is such as to scare off folks who really wouldn't like to be stuck doing person management & ticking off KPI's. It's all a bit corporatey hoop jumping though. Be vaguely interested to go back and compare to the ad for the last job I succesfully applied for.

  • Yep, sounds so soulless, keep doing the the DJ/Graphic designer thang.

  • Just in case you haven't seen this on the other 'jobs' thread:

    Wheels for Wellbeing is a charity which supports disabled people to cycle in London. Whatever impairment, long term health condition or disability you have, we can help with your cycle query.

    Sessional Cycling Instructors are vital members of the Wheels for Wellbeing team. You are the public face of the organisation, helping disabled children, young people and adults to cycle.

Other duties include record keeping and some cash handling.
    You should have experience of delivering Bikeability training, preferably to disabled people (although this is not essential and training can be provided) and you should be at least part-qualified in this.

  • Hi Heather, realistically when do you need people to start? This sounds just like what I'm doing/want to be doing but I'm still between Bham and Ldn at the moment! Sorry, will send you an email too.

  • Hi MotherGirl - ASAP to be honest. We've just secured additional funding to run some extra sessions over the summer to disabled children. If you're between Bham and Ldn, do you have availability whilst in London? The additional sessions run through to end of October, so it's not the end of the world, but it would help.

  • Yes, annoyingly my next few weeks are patchy as things are wrapping up with schools and then some voluntary work but I'll send you some deets. After mid-August I'm definitely free whenever.
