The Bike Project recruiting for technical roles in London and Birmingham workshops

The Bike Project is currently recruiting for technical roles, including technical assistant, shop lead technician and cycling instructor, for its workshops in London and Birmingham.

“At The Bike Project, we take secondhand bikes, fix them up and donate them to refugees and asylum seekers in London and Birmingham,” said The Bike Project. “The UK is bursting with opportunities – but it’s also expensive. Especially when you’re a refugee trying to navigate the complex asylum process on just £37.75 a week. At The Bike Project, we believe that no one should have to choose between eating a square meal and catching the bus. That’s why we do bikes.”

The Bike Project says is often on the lookout for great people to join its team, and at the moment it continues to grow and expand. It is currently looking for three technical roles, to work in its workshops in London and Birmingham.

It is a Living Wage Employer and particularly encourages applications from women, disabled, and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, and those who have lived experience of the asylum process.
