I was made redundant after 24 years of being an administrator at the end of last year and, after fruitlessly looking for a similar role, have now decided I would like to pursue a career change to hopefully find a job I enjoy doing (yep, I know it's a long shot!).
Over the past 3-4 years I've been steadily getting more and more into cycling, out every day on my old shed of a bike and watching all the latest action on TV, so I'm now thinking about a job that involves cycling in some way.
Over the past 6 months I've completed a bike maintenance course but can't really see myself being a mechanic full time. Hopefully I can draw on your expertise on how to go about looking for opportunities, what jobs are available and how you get to hear about them.
I constantly look at the CTC and Sustrans websites for their vacancies but nothing much comes up on there. I've just signed up to help out arranging a local sponsored charity cycle event which I'm sure will be fun but that's only once a year. I've also signed up to train as a Sky Ride Team Leader but again that's only four or five events a year.
If anybody has any ideas I'd love to hear them!
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
