meet Ed

  • There’s a lot of employers out there... What made you choose us?
  • I've always wanted to work in a bike shop as I’m a massive enthusiast. Cycle Republic gave me that chance.

  • Tell us a bit about your role…
  • I’m mainly a Cycle Mechanic, but every now and then I do some shop floor duties too.

  • What do you get up to on a typical day?
  • Mainly servicing clients’ bikes and ordering speciality items but every day can be a little different.

  • What’s the best thing about working here?
  • It's the guys I work with! Everyone is professional and down to earth. It can get hectic at times, but we all know how to handle that challenge.

  • What challenges have you faced and how did you deal with them?
  • I would say the biggest challenge is keeping everyone happy. There is no one way of dealing with different problems. That's where you have to think on your feet.

  • Tell us about the training and development...
  • For me it was quite intensive. As this I my first ‘bike job’, there was a lot to know but the training was consistent and the trainers were very patient.

  • What's been your biggest achievement?
  • Coming up through the ranks. I started as a bike builder and then got the training to be a mechanic. I still have a way to go.

  • What do you think makes someone successful at Cycle Republic?
  • I think you need to be patient and listen to your colleagues and clients.

  • And, to anyone thinking about applying, what would you tell them?
  • You will meet a whole bunch of different people in this line of work. I think you should just go for it. I did and it was the best thing I've ever done! Good luck!
