Evans Cycles

  • Ipswich
We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated individuals to start their Evans Cycles Adventure!

About the Role:

For our Bike Builders; tinkering on their bike is no longer just a hobby. We want hands-on, technically minded individuals who understand the excitement of presenting our customers with their brand new bike. Be it a first road bike, kid’s bike or top of the range mountain bike. You will be bringing bikes to life, straight from the box.

You will be a representative of Evans Cycles and an ambassador for cycling. Previous experience in a professional workshop or a knowledge of bike mechanics would be great although not essential, you should have a basic working knowledge of bike building. You will be enrolled on Prologue (our in-house training program) from day one, giving you the skills and knowledge to confidently meet the needs of each individual customer.

About You:

You will…

Have some existing knowledge of bike building and an understanding of bike mechanics
Demonstrate a readiness to learn and develop
Be approachable and able to demonstrate strong communication skills that are tailored to customers with varying levels of cycling experience
Be a flexible and committed team player, willing to support the store during our busy peak season
Have strong problem solving skills and demonstrate an ability to use your initiative whilst working independently

About Us:

We’ve come a long way from the local shop in Kennington Road, London in 1921. Back then we made our own bikes, and even won awards for the quality of our service. It was (and still is) all about knowledge, passion and value. These three things are still part of our DNA – we’re still a local bike shop, but now with nationwide stores and a huge online store that operate on a global scale.

We love to reward our colleagues for the passion and enthusiasm they put into what they do.
