The Sustainable Transport Team is seeking to recruit new Cyclist Training Instructors to deliver training to children and adults. The main area of operation will be in Sutton, a new shared service area. As one one of our professional trained instructors you could expect to earn up £188.96 to deliver our standard 10-hour Bikeability course.

The Royal Borough of Kingston (RBK) is a Bikeability Scheme delivering best practice as set by the National Standard, the government's approved cycle training to get “more people cycling, more safely and more often.”

All cyclist instructors must train on a 4-day professional accreditation course. It is an advantage if you already hold this qualification although not essential as training will be given to the right applicants. So if you are a regular cyclist, have good road sense, are a good communicator and enjoy working outdoors, then this could be just the job for you. If appropriate you will receive further training in First Aid and Maintenance.

There is no obligation on your part to accept every supply assignments we may offer, or on the Council’s part, to offer further assignments. However, it is anticipated that you will deliver a minimum of 30 sessions over the course of 6 months. You are entitled to one twelfth of the annual leave entitlement for the post for each month worked and this entitlement is reflected in your hourly rate of pay.

As this post involves direct contact with young people, a fresh RBK Disclosure will be required from the Disclosure Barred Service.
