    The Hackney Peddler is an independent bike shop in the heart of East London.

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 a part time Part Time Mechanic/Bike Builder to work on and prepare our vast stock of classic bikes and frames.

    Role & Responsibilities

    • Cleaning and polishing classic frames and parts
    • Liaising with the Head Mechanic to ensure stock levels are maintained
    • Maintaining a tidy and safe working environment and helping ensure others do the same
    • 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 and organise your daily workload
    • Work well under pressure and keep your cool when things heat up
    • Keep good time management skills
    • Have a sense of urgency and ability to think outside the box occasionally
    • Computer literate and possess a good standard of written communication

    Salary and benefits

    • Hourly rate dependent on experience
