Job Description


Perlie Rides was established officially in 2005 and has an excellent local reputation for being diligent, knowledgeable and passionate about what we do. We aim for the highest standards in customer care and mechanical ability. We love riding and building bikes in our workshop. Amongst the team we have members of staff that ride BMX, Enduros, DH, Audax, tours, trials, dirt jumps, you name it we ride it!


We are looking for people passionate about bikes and the trade. We assemble from scratch as well as repair, renovate and rebuild everything. The majority of our work is Commuter servicing but there is always feather light Di2 dream machines and downhill monsters waiting for our meticulous attention. 



Interested applicants should be reliable and communicate fluently in English. Basic IT skills, being attentive to the needs of customers and colleagues as well as mechanical ability are essential attributes. Cytech qualifications and advanced cycle specific skills like wheel building or fork servicing are desirable but not necessary requirements. 


The role available requires flexibility as we don’t employ specific sales personnel. We believe the customer should be in direct communication with the technician who works on their bike. As such we have a friendly working environment with minimal hierarchical structure. Even the boss fixes punctures and sweeps the floor!


We require a level of, rather than duration of experience. If you are up to the task at hand we will be happy to hear from you. It will be required of you to hit the ground running which means you will need to know bikes, their variations and requirements. You will need to be able to work independently and use your initiative. You will however be working very closely with a small, highly experienced group of supportive colleagues. A willingness and enthusiasm to improve the team, yourself and the customer experience is essential.
