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.
