We are MP Smarter Travel, a London-based sustainability consultancy. We are looking for 2x experienced and organised cyclists to install and collect air quality monitoring test tubes in at 94 schools in the City of Westminster. The schools will be split amongst the two cyclists, so we expect each cyclist to visit around 47 schools each (flexible depending on hours available).

As we are monitoring air quality levels, we feel that it is essential that our approach to project delivery uses zero emissions transport. For the geographic area covered, the bicycle is the ideal mode of transport.

The project will run from March to July 2020, with work to be delivered in the first week of each month. This is a part time, flexible hours position in which you can set your own schedule. For a strong cyclist, we expect that the work will take around 30 hours each per month.
