Learn with us and become a professional cycle mechanic

If you’re the sort of person who sees an inefficiency in your day to day life, and gets to work on a solution immediately, you might be the person we’re looking for. We are looking to train up a highly skilled and professional cycle mechanic with our in-house team of experts. You will have the opportunity to learn a skill from the best, and to get paid while doing it.

We want a dynamic, enthusiastic, and motivated individual to join our friendly and hard working team, all of whom have a real passion for bikes.

Of course, experience with bikes is desirable, but your overall attitude and aptitude is more important to us. If you take pride in everything you do, from the washing up to your greatest passions in life, then please do get in touch with a detailed application. Tell us about your passions in life, and why you think you’d be a good fit in our 20 strong team.

South Coast Bikes is Brighton and Hove's premier bicycle servicing workshop. Founded in a garden shed in 2003 we've grown to become the successful business we are today, servicing over 2000 bikes a year, as well as being the operations partner for the Brighton Bike Share scheme. We've stayed true to our founding principles, and offer outstanding customer service, pride in a job well done, and a supportive, collaborative, and enjoyable work environment.

This is a great opportunity to join a successful business in a growing industry. As part of your training you'll work in every area of the company acquiring new skills and knowledge along the way. You'll have the opportunity to work with a wide range of bikes and technologies both new and old.

Initially the role is 9am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday but across the company we work a variety of shifts from 6am to 9pm, 7 days a week. All roles start with 28 days holiday and, you’ll be pleased to know, we are a Brighton living wage employer. Full training will be provided and other perks include parts at cost price + vat and regular staff social events!

Age, experience and/or qualifications are no barrier to applying for this position. What we're more interested in are switched on, motivated individuals who can absorb information and use logic in a wide range of situations. Professional communication with our customers is paramount, so people skills along with strong spoken and written English is essential.
