meet Mara

  • There’s a lot of employers out there... What made you choose us?
  • I first started reading the customers’ reviews and they were all great. That told me a lot about the company and how the shop was set up. 

  • Tell us a bit about your role…
  • I started as a bike builder due to my experience, but with a bit of training from my colleagues I started doing mechanical jobs as well.

  • What do you get up to on a typical day?
  • Whatever comes in. Bike builds, small repairs, bigger repairs, organising the working area, cleaning – if something needs to be done, let’s do it!

  • What’s the best thing about working here?
  • Definitely the staff, and the opportunity to work and grow.

  • What challenges have you faced and how did you deal with them?
  • Learning to deal with more difficult repairs until I got to the point where I didn’t need to ask for help anymore. This was possible because of great colleagues helping me and training me from the very beginning.

  • Tell us about the training and development...
  • Training and development is coming to work every day and facing something new every day.

  • What's been your biggest achievement?
  • The mechanical training.

  • What do you think makes someone successful at Cycle Republic?
  • Being proactive and positive, no matter how hard the day is.

  • And, to anyone thinking about applying, what would you tell them?
  • Come work in Fenchurch St!
