• Hey there potential hire! You clicked so I guess you're intrigued, good, let me tell you more...

    We’re a new company that does bicycle repairs a little differently. In short, customers book services and repairs online, we go to collect the bikes and work on them in our London Fields (E8) workshop, then we send them back. It is a simple enough concept that gives our customers convenience and means our mechanics work in a nice workshop, unlike some of our "on-demand" competitors.

    We’re looking for someone who can really work closely with us to deliver top notch services to our customers. Specifically, you’ll need to fix all sorts of bikes, be on camera (hence superstar), drive a van, be nice to customers, and do random jobs to keep the workshop running smoothly. We’re also looking for someone who can take the initiative during down-times to help us get customers and grow the company, whatever that may be (Social Media posts / videos?)

    Working hours would be 9am – 6pm, 5 days a week, at our London Fields E8 workshop. We’ll be running a 3 month initial probation period, fully paid of course, to make sure you’re a good fit for us and happy with the range of work you’ll be doing.

    So if the above sounds good and you have the experience to confidently route internal cables, bleed RX4 calipers to perfection, and strip an Alfine hub without losing your shit, then drop me a CV –> simon@honorcycles.com

  • Working hours would be 8:30am – 6:30pm, 5 days a week

    47.5 hour work week? Assuming a 30 minute break.

  • I would assume an hour but 5 days a week of 10 hour days doesn't sound fun. Expect a high staff turnover for that.

  • In short, customers book services and repairs online, we go to collect the bikes and work on them in our London Fields (E8) workshop, then we send them back

    Sounds like what Central Workshop used to be. Best of luck, It's a logistical pain in the ass.

    Are those working hours split shifts or per person?

  • Wonder what the rate of pay might be ?

    24k, it's in the title.

  • Its in the title

    Damn he's quick

  • According to the title of the thread, the rate of pay is twenty-four thousand pounds sterling (gross) per calendar year.

  • Benefits include a discount at A Child of the Jago for the staff uniform of battered stovepipe hat, fingerless mittens and a bag of smuts to apply to one’s cheek, urchin style.

  • my art school maths puts that at £10 an hour before tax. If I was a superstar mechanic I'd hope to be earning more than that...

  • At least they're stating rates. Most just give you the old DOE shit then slap you during the interview.
    Some don't even fucking mention pay at all. It's just copy pasta recruitment ads.

  • Yeah I guess, it's just the way it's presented as amazing pay...

  • ..oh, I'm with you there for sure. I work on bikes for a living, and it's generally imposed on you that getting paid over a certain amount is a favour and you should feel lucky.
    The whole industry is up it's arse.
