We’re hiring – Workshop Manager

Posted on April 28 2015

Want to join us on our mission to be the world’s best bicycle company? We’re looking for a talented individual to manage Factory Five’s workshop.

Here at F5 HQ we have up to 50 orders in-progress at any one time and the workshop manager’s key responsibility is to ensure each happens correctly and at the right time. Essentially this means treating every bicycle as a project and making it happen.

The role involves working in a number of areas:

  • stock planning and control to have every component ready on time
  • keeping smart and effective order in the workshop
  • maintaining praiseworthy service and informing customers of service
  • selling bikes, components and accessories to people in-store
  • Training and overseeing workshop assistants
  • working on bikes, talking about bikes, riding bikes

This is a very hands-on role dealing with our suppliers, our customers and our best products. The person we have in mind has experience in retail or project management and has a track record in making things better than they already are.

You don’t need to know how to build a bike, we can teach you that. You do need to speak some Chinese though… and it would help if you like bikes!

This is a great opportunity to join a young, exciting company that prides itself in doing good things. Only those with an intuitive and self-starting attitude who are prepared to push for success need apply.
