Bicycle Mechanic/Shop and Rental Assistant

Total Adventure Bike Hire is a busy cycle hire company based in Windermere, with a focus on further expansion for both the rental and retail aspects of our business.

We are looking for a confident and responsible person to join our small friendly team. If you enjoy building bikes, fixing bikes, riding bikes and  providing great service, then you could be the person we need! In return we offer a great job, working with good people, in a perfect environment to enjoy getting out and exploring on two wheels when the day’s work is done.

The role involves assisting the existing team in organising and looking after a fleet of up to 80 bikes, both electric and conventional, across three locations and taking pride in ensuring we offer a well maintained product delivered through safe customer experience.

Ideally you will hold a Cytech L2 qualification or have reasonable and relevant experience in a bicycle workshop, and that you are able to demonstrate this. Experience and knowledge of current electric bike systems particularly Bosch and Shimano is also required.

This is a seasonal role although there could be opportunities to extend the contract, or even make it a permanent position.
