Job Description

Better Health Bikes in East London is recruiting a Full-Time Mechanic to join our team.


An independent workshop carrying out repairs and services, we also recycle donated bikes to something like their former glory. We have an artisan sourdough bakery here too which makes delicious baked goods for local restaurants and delis, Stoke Newington’s Saturday Farmers Market and which can also be bought in our cosy on-site café.


The bike shop and the bakery are both part of the social enterprise arm of The Centre for Better Health (CBH), an independent mental health charity based in Hackney. Each provide work-skills training placements to individuals recovering from mental ill health. Involvement with this social enterprise is a rewarding, interesting and exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about bicycle mechanics, enjoys sharing their knowledge and experience, and wants to support good mental health in the local community. Hopefully you’re friendly, positive and a good listener too.


If this sounds like you then we’d love to hear from you!

  • Management of the bike shop and workshop space - including H&S and ISO 9001 compliance

  • Work with other colleagues in the social enterprise and as part of a team supporting mental health recovery


This is a full-time role, five shifts per week. The bike shop opens 6 days a week, Monday to Saturday, so some weekend shifts to be expected.
