The Brick is a growing charity with big aspirations for people in need within our community. We provide RELIEF, RESTORATION and REFORMATION by offering tailored support, hope, and opportunity to those looking to improve their quality of life.

We are currently working in partnership with Wigan Council to support the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Challenge fund for improvements to local cycling and walking provision. This partnership enables a creative approach to bike supply and creation of new hubs through the support and training of people who are homeless, thus providing Wigan with wider social benefits. Specialist training and mentoring will be in introduced for additional training cohorts, with a focus on training and work experience for people who are homeless, that develops their customer care, confidence and communication skills. Training programmes will build the skills of people enabling them to move into jobs with a focus on group sessions, which build self-esteem and confidence, to enable people to make successful applications for work and further training. We will also partner with local businesses for securing employment opportunities.

A key part of this project is to improve access to affordable bikes to enable people to access work, training and local services as well as promoting healthy lifestyles.  This post will manage our commitment to that programme of work and be responsible for delivering the project outcomes and MCF targets.

Main responsibilities

Your role will be to grow and promote the workshop as well as managing a small team of staff and Volunteers.  You will take a hands-on role in the workshop on a day-to-day basis – being actively involved in the day-to-day repair, maintenance, and recycling of donated bikes for the general public. You will be responsible for delivering the targets and social outcomes that underpin the funding for this project.

You will help to develop long term business sustainability through increased donations, income generation and maximisation of both the workshop resources and the track record / reputation we have already secured.

You will help to develop a long-term vision for the next 5 years in the workshop – developing new business opportunities that meet local need as well as providing income streams to underpin the social output of our work.   Where appropriate you will secure external support through trusts and grants to support key areas of work.

You will monitor and evaluate the workshop against key performance indicators and project targets. You will also collate data and information, such as case studies to assist with the evaluation of the social impact of the project.
