Bike mechanic – Cookson Cycles Ltd

We are looking for individuals with experience in delivering the highest standards of customer service in a bike workshop. The successful candidate will ideally be qualified to Cytech Level 2 with experience working with Bosch e-bikes, electronic gearing, and suspension servicing.

Senior technician – Specialized Concept Store Ruislip

Specialized Concept Store Ruislip is looking for a senior technician to join our busy workshop team. We want a technically minded individual with a love of everything cycling who understands the importance of taking care of our customers. We are looking for someone who is comfortable both fixing bicycles and talking to customers. The ideal person enjoys being hands-on, is organised and able to follow a process. You must be able to complete repairs to an exceptional standard in a set amount of time.

Front of house sales – Strype Street Cycles

The role will be multi-faceted. Most of your day will be spent advising customers – helping them with their bike and other purchases as well as dealing with service issues. As bike fitting is at the core of everything we do, you will need to understand that process and ideally have an interest in training to be a bike fitter. There may also be an element of purchasing and returns handling in the role and occasionally you may be called upon to lead a shop ride or help with marketing events outside of the store.
