meet Jarred

  • There’s a lot of employers out there... What made you choose us?
  • Whilst looking for jobs I happened across Cycle Republic as a customer and received much better service than local competitors. This gave me a good impression of what the business was like to work for and within a few days I had dropped in an application.

  • Tell us a bit about your role…
  • My role is to assist the store manager in the runing and organising of the store.

  • What do you get up to on a typical day?
  • The team are brilliant, especially in store team. We have all worked together for a good amount of time and have developed alongside each other. This means we all have good strong working relationships and can rely on one another to get the job done.

  • What challenges have you faced and how did you deal with them?
  • Coming from a catering background I did not have any retail experience. This was initially difficult as I didn’t really know how to approach a customer and didn’t feel comfortable giving advice. I spoke to Luke, the manager, and he helped me develop into the role.

  • Tell us about the training and development...
  • The training has been great - I’ve received lots of opportunities to grow and further myself within the company. I now feel like I am getting close to running my own store and feel fully comfortable within the role that I am in. I know that if I am struggling with something there is a big network of individuals ready to help.

  • What's been your biggest achievement?
  • I managed to jump from a part-time customer service advisor role to an assistant manager within five months.

  • What do you think makes someone successful at Cycle Republic?
  • A good work ethic and a genuine drive to exceed expectations is a good start but I believe success within Cycle Republic comes down to caring about the brand and believing that Cycle Republic has the possibility to be the market leader.

  • And, to anyone thinking about applying, what would you tell them?
  • Cycle Republic is a great company to work for and as a brand they are growing really fast. Now is the time to get involved in a company that’s only getting bigger. There’s a good amount of job security and the perks/deals alone make it worth while!
