New CEO required to lead the organisation as it builds towards 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships and the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
A hugely exciting opportunity for a new CEO to lead the organisation as it builds towards 2023 inaugural combined UCI Cycling World Championships in Scotland and the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024. In addition, British Cycling has ambitious plans to drive growth across all forms of the sport, to broaden the number of commercial partners, to increase membership numbers, and to get more people from the wider community cycling more often.
British Cycling is the internationally recognised governing body for cycling in Great Britain. It has become one of the world’s leading NGBs thanks to its ability to harness mass participation from international success. With a membership of 145,000, the organisation works across all disciplines of cycling – BMX, cyclo-cross, cycle speedway, mountain biking, road and track – and is committed to a range of initiatives from “playground to podium” to create a true cycling nation by inspiring a boom in participation.
British Cycling enjoyed record-breaking success at the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, cementing Great Britain as one of the strongest nations in competitive cycling. Away from competition, British Cycling strives to encourage millions of people to ride their bikes across a variety of recreational programmes and has recently published its ‘Lead our sport, inspire our communities’ strategy supporting the organisation to grow the sport and enable more people to discover cycling.
