Bike Mechanic Wanted

Good with bikes, and great with people? We should talk! Everyone’s Adventure operates all over the greater Wellington area, providing bike hire and sales, servicing and maintenance of clients’ bikes, supported day trips, and multi-day cycle tours. We’re growing fast and need more help!

The Job:

  • Mechanical duties – build, repair and service a range of bikes to a high standard, at our workshop @ The Bike Shed – Pencarrow
  • Customer Service duties – treat customers to great service and bike chat
  • Operational duties – help director with purchasing decisions, business strategy etc
  • Guiding / hosting work – take group rides and tours, all over the Remutaka Cycle Trail and beyond with Cycle Remutaka and Everyone’s Adventure
  • Hours – we’re open from 9.45 every day until around 6pm, and have at least one full-time permanent role going, plus casual work around the edges. Likely some weekend hours involved, but happy to chat about what’s going to work for both parties.
  • Pay – negotiable base rate according to experience etc, plus commission on servicing work. Works out better than any shop rate we’ve heard of!

What we’re looking for:

  • A friendly, outgoing, and confident attitude
  • An honest, hardworking and reliable work ethic
  • Great levels of mechanical knowledge and significant experience working on bikes (workshop experience is a definite plus)

Why you’ll love working for us:

  • Flexibility – we can usually give time off or shift swap at short notice
  • Good pay – decent base rate, plus commission on servicing work
  • Great staff discounts – we pass on our wholesale rates on most major brands, and you can jump on any of our tours / shuttles for free on your days off (or use our kayaks and SUPs etc at our Days Bay site).
  • Healthy mix of indoor / outdoor work
  • Social – you’ll be working with stoked clients and other happy staff

Applications close 8th September, but we may hire before then if the right person comes along. For a detailed job description, or to just go ahead and apply (with intro email and CV please), please email dave@everyonesadventure.co.nz. Thanks!
