  • 22 grand job came out in 2005

  • I wouldn’t usually chip in on something like this but isn’t that wage pretty low for the skill set required and the location too?

    Happy to be corrected, just curious really.

  • They only have 1 shop so if you chuck in paying the rent as "ad hoc tasks" they basically run the entire thing.

    Also curious how they expect one person to put in all the hours to make it work for that money.

  • It’s effectively £28,000 per year on target. There’s initially no staff to manage and a lot of room to grow and develop as the company grows.

  • How regular has hitting target been?

  • I earn £24k as a mechanic about a mile away. You might want to think a bit higher than that.

  • Would it be wrong to read that as no staff to delegate work to and so more work?

  • Mention the word manager in the NHS and that's agenda for change band 6-7.!

  • It's not for a NHS job though is it.

    This forum is a bit crazy sometimes. The shop has good people in it and a quick look at Bikebiz shows the role is pitched at a salary the same or higher than in other comparable bike shops in London.
