    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:Bikeworks has recently been awarded funding to provide bikes to families that are supported by local charities. As a result we are looking for additional mechanics to join the existing team to help increase the number of bikes that can be produced each week. They collect more than 100 bikes per week and the variable condition of these bikes means that not every bike can be repaired and made safe, but the ones that can exceed their current capacity. The work is varied and interesting and the workshop facility is extensive with all the tools and equipment required.

    Bikeworks are still recruiting volunteers during Covid-19.
