British Cycling Recruits Women's Representative

20 June 2011

British Cycling is currently recruiting a Women's Representative to help the organisation as it works towards achieving greater equality in cycling.

The role, which is voluntary and which will involve assisting with executive decisions at Board level and communication with key delegates, will provide strong female representation working across the organisation.

British Cycling is currently improving equality in cycling with a number of projects, having recently launched a women's network of cycle rides called Breeze - a programme which aims to provide exciting new opportunities for women keen to participate in cycling.

At present, women are under-represented, both in terms of the number of officials within the sport and its administration: only 14% of British Cycling's members are female.

British Cycling's Chief Executive Ian Drake said: "The creation of this role reiterates our commitment to make sure the issue of diversity is being addressed within our sport. We have already come a long way in tackling the ongoing challenges we face in this area. In recent months we have implemented many initiatives that aim to help make cycling a more accessible sport for all and in becoming a more equitable employer."

British Cycling is in the process of recruiting for this position. To find out more on the role visit our vacancies page.
