Join the Co Cars family

Co Cars is revolutionising the way people travel in South West by providing ‘mobility as a service’, allowing our members to access and pay for their transport only when they need to use it. We want to make places more liveable, people’s lives better, reduce emissions and cut congestion.

We take an ethical approach to business and we trade as a not-for-profit social enterprise. We expect to see significant growth over the next few years and are on the lookout for people to join our friendly and welcoming team.

Current vacancies

Below, you’ll find details of any roles we currently have available. However, even if none are advertised, we’re always interested to hear from people who share our values and can contribute to our success so get in touch to arrange an informal chat.

Co Delivery Riders (part time)

Location: Exeter based
Hours: Guaranteed hours 1.5 hours per delivery round, anticipated core delivery days Fri and Sat 8:30am to 10:30am, other times by mutual agreement
Pay: £9.50 per hour (Real Living Wage)

Co Delivery is Exeter’s first wholesale delivery service using electrically assisted cargo bikes. We’ve been running since 2017 and work with a range of local businesses across the city to deliver their goods while saving them time, staying out of congestion and improving our air quality. We are on the road 6 days per week, we love every minute and we’re now on the lookout for more bods to join our merry band!

What makes an ideal Co Delivery rider you ask? Well, we’d be happy to answer! We want people who can cover at least one morning delivery round a week, sometimes more if required. You’ll be collecting one of our lovely e-cargo bikes from our Exeter workshop before peddling off to pick up and deliver to some of Exeter’s finest independents including The Boatyard Bakery and businesses up and down Magdalen Road.

You’ll be savvy when it comes to the basics of bike maintenance (for example, punctures and basic safety checks). But don’t worry if you’ve not ridden an e-cargo bike before as we’ll give you any training you need.

Great communications skills are a must as you’ll be dealing with a variety of businesses as well as keeping our team up to date on your deliveries.

And lastly, as the job not only involves cycling our e-cargo bikes, but will also require loading and unloading a variety of goods, you should be a confident cyclist and have a good degree of physical fitness.

Interested? Then pop your CV to Sergio.soares@co-cars.co.uk using the subject line ‘Job Application <Your Name>’, along with a cover letter explaining why you’re the person we’re looking for. Good luck!

Bike Mechanic

Location: Exeter based. Some occasional travel within the South West.
Hours: Flexible – Job share / part time / weekend options available
Pay: Up to £22.5k per annum, depending on experience

Are you an experienced bike mechanic or someone who loves to work on their own bikes? Providing that you have experience of working on bikes and have a passion for cycling and sustainable transport we’d love to hear from you!

Co Bikes was the very first on-street electric bike hire scheme in the UK. Over the last few years, we’ve grown to provide an extensive network across Exeter and this year we are due to triple the size of our fleet as well as expand into other locations across the South West.

We are growing fast and his means we need experienced Bike Mechanics to join our team. Not only will you be helping to look after our fleet of e-bikes but you’ll also help with the servicing and maintenance of our Co Delivery e-cargo bikes.

You’ll have extensive experience in servicing and repairing bikes. Any experience of working on electric bikes would be highly desirable as would any knowledge of electronics and wiring but these are by no means essential. You’ll be calm under pressure, a quick learner and happy to work both within our workshop and on site at our e-bike stations. You’ll also keep a close eye on our service records and stock control.

Interested? Then simply send your CV and a covering letter letting us know why you would be great in this role to john.vessey@co-cars.co.uk using the subject line “Job Application Your Name”.
