About us:

Rat Race Cycles is a bike shop that's mainly a workshop in Nunhead, London SE15. We've built an excellent reputation for bike servicing and customer services over the last 9 years and we're proud to have a 4.9 star rating on Google with 128 reviews so far. We're not a big shop (although we're expanding the premises later this year to add two more workstands and more stock and workshop storage) but we punch above our weight; we have a lot of loyal and keen customers, mainly commuters, urban and road riders but with an increasing number of gravel and mountain bikers.
We're a close-knit team and we're committed to being an inclusive workspace; diversity in the team is key. Nunhead's a lovely area just east of Peckham and the main street is comprised of almost entirely independent shops, so the area has a lot of character and we're happy to be part of the supportive local community.

Our current head mechanic is emigrating this summer, so we need to find a new one!

About who we're looking for:
We need someone with several years of full-time workshop experience, preferably as a workshop manager. You'll need to be able to handle almost anything that comes through the door, from cargo bikes to EPS, TT rigs with full internal cables to Sturmey Archer to Bromptons to gluing tubulars. You'll need to be good on the phone, computer-savvy enough to use our EPOS system, and financially aware.
At our core is superb customer service, so you'll need to be excellent at communicating with all kinds of customers with kindness and consideration; we have people desperate to keep their basic bike running for as little as possible as it's their only form of transport, and we have people with a fleet of five-figure superbikes who want the newest kit, and we treat them equally, whether they know loads about bikes or very little.
You'll be training and developing more junior staff, and because we know learning never stops, you'll also be keeping up with the latest tech docs, and attending training courses to get to grips with whatever's new - because odds are it's going to come through the door shortly.

It's a full time role, at the moment working a variable 4x10-hour days a week, with some Saturdays (but we're closed on Sundays). Salary is negotiable based on experience but may be somewhere around £29,000pa. Please visit to apply.

"Bike Trade Buzz" is a trade members only forum for the bicycle industry.

Membership is restricted to bona-fide members of the bicycle industry and related services industries ONLY

All new sign ups will be verified as having a genuine and legitimate link to the bike trade before being granted access. This verification process can be simple, or complicated, depending upon the email address that you sign up with.

To make things simpler for all involved, please, wherever possible, sign up using your primary BUSINESS email address, for example or etc. So long as the email address can be checked against a genuine bike or related business, your membership application should be approved pretty quickly (typically a few hours rather than days).

At no point will email addresses be made available to anyone except for the site administrators.

If you are unable to do this, sign up using your preferred email address and then send an email to "editor at biketradebuzz . com" from the same email address, explaining who you are, where you work and, if necessary, how your business relates to the bike industry. This registration method is likely to take longer whilst we verify your credentials (this could take several days) and we may require you to provide further credentials to verify who you are.

In all cases you will receive an email from the site which will contain an activation link which you MUST follow to activate your account once you have been approved.

Anonymity within the forum is allowed: your username need not be your real name, however you must supply genuine credentials for sign up. Only the site administrators have access to your full details.

It is vitally important that membership of this site is open only to those people directly involved with the bike trade either via shops, suppliers, bike trade press or some types of ancilliary suppliers and whilst our membership requirements might seem like a pain, they exist to enable the trade to have an area where business matters can be discussed openly and frankly, without fear of that information being seen by anyone outside the trade. If you don't approve of these principles, please don't bother signing up.
