TRANSFORM YOUNG LIVES WITH CLUB PELOTON

We are recruiting a number of voluntary positions to join our Board of Trustees.

Club Peloton is a charity and free membership club. Our community works predominantly in the built environment sector and enjoys the combined benefits of networking, riding their bikes and fundraising. We use cycling as a platform for events (both on and off the bike) that bring together a love for the sport and the opportunity to network while raising money to transform the lives of vulnerable young people. 

Our flagship events include our women-only pedElle ride as well as our long-running Cycle to MIPIM, giving industry professionals the opportunity to complete tough challenges together, building stronger and more meaningful working relationships. The friendly and interactive atmosphere builds camaraderie very quickly and forms the core of the Club Peloton ethos.

As a grant-making charity, Club Peloton supports a number of projects, all of which work to transform the lives of vulnerable young people. Since our first outing on two wheels in 2006, Club Peloton has made grants totalling £4.5m to fund a variety of projects.

Club Peloton has ambitions to grow our membership, increase the variety of events and number of people participating, as well as expand our fundraising and the impact it has.

Whether you’re an experienced Trustee or wanting to take your first step at Board level, we want to hear from you.

Our new Trustees will have skills or knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

  • Membership organisations and how to grow them

  • Marketing and promotion – ideally including social media

  • Good network and contacts

  • Knowledge of charities and what drives/motivates them (for grant giving and building relations)

  • Finance and accounting

  • Energetic and action-oriented

  • Love of the bike

As a Trustee you will have:

  • Opportunities to make strategic decisions & develop new skills

  • Opportunities to network with senior professionals

  • Influence to shape Club Peloton’s future direction

  • The chance to help transform the lives of young people

 

The expected time commitment is four to six Trustee meetings per year, and participation in at least one of the cycling events.  Meetings are held either virtually or in person in central London between 8.30 – 10am weekdays. There will also be ad-hoc calls and meetings with other Trustees and the CEO. 

Deadline for applications: 14 January 2022

Interviews: late January
