Join Our Team

Vaidas Bicycles is an independently run bicycle shop in Honor Oak Park, South-East London. After actively serving the local community for over 10 years we have secured another premises in Blackheath, Greenwich.

Due to this growth, we need a mechanic to, amongst other responsibilities, service and repair bicycles at the new location, as well as build up the community spirit much like what has been achieved at the Honor Oak shop.

Ideally, you’ll either be currently working in or looking to return to the bicycle industry. We will consider all applications if the applicant can demonstrate a good level of bike maintenance skills, is polite, professional and presentable.

The role requires you to be positive and professional as you’ll be in the public eye and the face of our business. You will be self-motivated and able to work on your own initiative.

The right person, will at times, run the shop on a day-to-day basis in the absence of a manager. We are looking for somebody who can juggle several things at once, doesn’t get put off by a bit of occasional pressure, is self-motivated to carry out tasks without being asked to do so.
