    Company Profile

    The Hackney Peddler is an independent bike shop in the heart of East London. We specialise in building bespoke custom bicycles for our customers based around classic steel frames, using a mix of modern and vintage parts and components. We also stock a refined range of used bikes, frames, parts, and a small range of accessories. In addition to this we operate a heavily tooled up workshop and take pride in being able to fix everything brought into us. We’re now looking for an experienced Head Mechanic to maintain the day to day running of our workshop and contribute to our ambitious long term expansion plan.

    Role & Responsibilities

    Ideally you will have 3-5 years mechanic experience and understand the attention to detail that classic and custom bike work requires. A Cytech level 2 qualification or the equivalent would be preferable, but is not essential as we are prepared to offer this training to the ideal person. You will take pride in your work and share a real passion for classic steel bikes.

    Day to day you will be responsible for ensuring the smooth and efficient running of the workshop. This includes, but is not limited to:

    • Assessing, quoting and booking of all repairs and services
    • Coordinating the team of mechanics to ensure all work is completed promptly and to a high standard
    • Scheduling of custom bike builds and shop floor bike renovation
    • Liaising with the Shop Manager to maintain stock levels and ensure special orders are made on time
    • Maintaining a tidy and safe working environment and helping ensure others do the same
    • Regular upkeep of all tools and workshop supplies
    • Any ad hoc tasks as and when required

    As well as the above you are able to:

    • Motivate yourself to work independently or as part of a team
    • Be autonomous, organise your work day and multitask were necessary
    • Work well under pressure and keep your cool when things heat up
    • Create an excellent customer and team experience
    • Think outside the box and get creative when unusual jobs pop up
    • Computer literate and possess a good standard of written communication

    Salary and benefits

    • Salary is £21,000 - £24,000 per year depending on experience and is also subject to a probationary period
    • 28 days paid holiday per year
    • Access to the company bonus scheme
