Bicycle Enthusiast - Repairs / Mechanic

Basingstoke Community Furniture Project are looking for a mechanic to repair bicycles,and check they are safe and ready for sale. 

The Bicycle Repair Workshop has been operating in the Community Furniture Project since 2010 with the aim of reducing waste, providing good bicycles at low cost to the people of Basingstoke and surrounding areas and supporting all aspects of cycling as a healthy activity and a sustainable means of transport. 

We are open Monday to Friday, mainly selling reconditioned bikes that have been repaired by our mechanics. In our warehouse, we receive old or discarded bicycles from members of the public. They are then sorted either for repair or for dismantling for recycling.

All of our work is supported by volunteers who want to contribute to the organisation. We are always looking for keen, enthusiastic people who ideally have some experience of cycling or working with bicycles; can work under their own initiative; enjoy working as part of a team or on their own; and are good with assisting members of the public. 

There are also opportunities for Warehouse volunteer - processing donated bikes; dismantling bikes that can't be repaired; and sorting and keeping parts that can be re-used;  Someone with the right skills could fulfill both roles.

If you feel you can make a positive contribution to the Bicycle Repair Workshop, to help us recycle even more old bikes and get more people cycling in Basingstoke we would love to hear from you.
