Job in a bike shop, maybe for someone on here?

Recommended Posts

From Gumtree

We are looking for someone who is well-spoken, presentable, punctual, reliable, has a happy demeanour, who genuinely likes helping people and who can show some initiative to join our team at Infinity Motorcycles, the leading supplier of motorcycle clothing and accessories in central London.

These are not just some idle words in an advert. We really are looking for someone who meets the above description. You are out there. We just need to find you.

Seriously, if you don't meet these requirements then please don't apply, I think McDonalds are hiring though.

This is a full time job, however if you are only available part-time then please get in touch as there may be a role for you if you are the right person.

We don't mind if English is not your first language, we do however need you to speak very good English. In fact a second language could well work in your favour as we’re a popular destination with tourists.

Your main task will be helping our customers as we are a very customer focused business. Our staff are our biggest asset in a competitive environment so we need you be good at what you do. To this end you will be required to spend time in training, often as a guest of our suppliers which may include weekday overnight stays.

Other duties include merchandising, tidying up, unpacking and all those other things that are involved with working in a shop. Some basic computing skills would be handy as well.

We offer a very competitive wage package including a generous commission structure and excellent staff discounts after a qualifying period.

We retail a wide range of motorcycle clothing and associated items. You do not need to have any experience of bikes to work here as we will teach you everything you need to know, however a bike licence is a serious asset in this job as obviously all of our customers ride bikes. We sell everything from basic beginners gear right up to £3000 airbag race suits. You must be willing to learn and have the confidence to sell to our customers, you need to be the expert.

Ideally we are looking for somebody who can start immediately. You will be required to work at both our Holborn and Great Portland street stores. There may be occasions when you need to work at other branches as well. All of our stores are accessible by public transport.

We are open seven days a week and as a consequence you will be expected to work Saturdays with a day off in the week. You will also be required to be available for one out of every three to four Sundays for which a bonus rate applies.

If you think that you are the sort of person we are looking for then please feel free to send me a CV with a bespoke letter explaining why you think we should hire you. If this simple task is beyond you then you’re not the person we are looking for. Please send your CV to me, Keith, at gps@infinitymotorcycles.com

Obviously we receive a lot of replies, over 200 for the last position, so can’t reply to everyone. If you are short listed we will invite you in for an interview next Tuesday or Wednesday at one of our central London stores.

We are a great company to work for, we enjoy social evenings out together as well as other activities which unsurprisingly, mainly centre around motorcycles. Most of our guys and girls have been with us for years and genuinely enjoy working here. We do not tolerate fools or people looking for an easy ride so only apply if you really want to work here.
