Internship: Global Bicycle Mayor Program

Help grow a high profile international network of city cycling leaders


The Bicycle Mayor concept started by BYCS in 2016 with one Mayor in Amsterdam and has now spread to every continent. These changemakers act as catalysts, identifying and leading projects that make the greatest impact for cycling in cities, and uniting everyone to take action. By doing this they are able to address challenges such as air pollution, health and sustainable mobility. And by connecting them across a global network, their status and opportunities are elevated, and challenges and solutions are shared rapidly.

The Bicycle Mayor network is playing an essential role in helping us to work towards our mission of 50by30: 50% of all city trips by bike by 2030. We have an ambition to add another 200 Bicycle Mayors to the network this year.

We are looking for a paid intern to join the Bicycle Mayor team at the BYCS office, in the Jordaan, Amsterdam.

You will help coordinate the growth of the network through handling enquiries and applications, support with new elections, help manage the relations with our existing Bicycle Mayors, share their success stories and help inspire people across the globe to join or support the movement by applying your skills (which may include marketing, growth hacking, fundraising and influencer relations).

Essential skills:

  • Project management
  • Marketing and communication

You are:

  • Able to get stuck in and switch between tasks, depending on demand.
  • Able to work independently and find your own opportunities within the company.
  • Able to contribute creative thinking and reveal new opportunities for the network.
  • But most of all… you are passionate about the mission of BYCS.

You will make a valuable contribution to the transformation of our cities to become fit for the future. And by doing so you will gain essential experience in project and event management, partner relations, and communications, as well as gain valuable insights into how cycling creates positive transformation in cities around the world. You’ll instantly step into BYCS’ strong values-led culture, that includes learning opportunities, a dynamic network and a social workplace.
