Our business has grown rapidly over the past two years and we’re excited to be able to offer a full-time position to a new member. The role is 32 hours per week at £18,525 pro rata. 

We are looking for someone who is interested in repairing customers’ bikes, refurbishing bikes and helping support cycling activities across the city. We also want a colleague who can help deliver training to schools groups and members of the public, who can keep our social media current and who can support the growth of the business as we explore new opportunities. They’ll have experience working as a bicycle mechanic already, a love for riding bikes and a desire to work in a shop without bosses – contributing to other projects that promote radical social change.

We have no managers because we’re worker co-operative and instead all take ownership of the business. This means that any new member will need to be someone who is happy to take on challenges and tasks without being asked to do so and who is comfortable making important decisions as a group. We’d like to encourage expressions of interest from non-male applicants as we strive toward correcting the gender imbalance in the cycling industry.

We are working on ideas that will see our business grow even more in response to the exciting new uptake in cycling. If you think you could help us achieve this and would like to apply for the position please send us an email to request an application pack. We’re also happy to answer any questions you want to ask us.
