Job Description

Dorvics Cycles has been selling and servicing bikes in Leighton Buzzard for over 80 years and we claim to be the oldest bike shop left in the Home Counties and Midlands. Under new management over the last 3 years we have transformed the business into a cycling hub and ‘go to’ bike shop, serving the vast and growing local cycling communities.  From cycling club members, triathletes, social cyclists and commuters, we have a diverse range of customer needs.

We are now looking for an ambitious person to take the lead in our workshop and assist in running the business. We are a small team and getting the right person is paramount as we all have to do our bit from cleaning to customer service and getting the spanners out and hands dirty. This opportunity will have flexible working arrangements with an average of 3-4 working days per week, including Saturdays. 

The initial introduction to the business will be soley workshop focused and so a Cytech qualification (or equivalent experience) is highly desirable. Following a successful probation period we anticipate increasing your level of responsibility to encompass the overall day to day management of the business. As a result it would also be an advantage to have some retail/business management experience.  This is an ideal development role for someone who is ready to step up in their career and/or someone that takes a pride in improving the business. Our workshop prides itself on good communication, quality of work and fast turnaround times. Our sales approach is honest, using plain English explanations and a welcoming attitude towards any customer. 

You will need to be, approachable, friendly and knowledgeable about cycling and bikes, comfortable carrying out day to day tasks including workshop stock ordering and be able to help develop the business with great knowledge around cycling, sales and retail. Most importantly, we need someone who is a “self-starter” willing to go the extra mile and give their very best. For this we will offer pay inline with your experience and the cycle industry with the potential to share in the business’s success via an incentive scheme once you have proved yourself.
