Experienced bike fitter-sales/mechanic
We are now looking to recruit an experienced bike fitter-sales person/mechanic for our busy store in Tunbridge Wells. We like to think we go that extra mile for all our customers. As with many small businesses, the role will be multi-faceted. Most of your day will be spent advising customers – helping them with their bike and other purchases as well as dealing with service issues. As bike fitting is at the core of everything we do, you will need to understand that process to be an experienced bike fitter. There may also be an element of purchasing and returns handling in the role and occasionally you may be called upon to lead a shop ride or help with marketing events outside of the store.

We are open to all types of applicants. Perhaps you have a long track record in bicycle retail and fancy a change, or have no experience but a passion for cycling. You should be willing to learn and adopt our ways of working, have a high attention to detail, and a problem solving approach (but still know when to ask for help).

If you are an experienced bike mechanic with supervisory experience keen to take the next step in an exciting and dynamic environment, wanting to share your passion for all things bike, then Wildside Cycles wants you.

You will:
– Be able to manage, motivate and inspire a team
– Be acutely aware of health and safety principles

– Great commercial awareness
