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 using the subject line “Job Application Your Name”.
