Bikes, bikes, bikes. That’s pretty much all we think about. And we’re passionate about making other people feel the same way – from the steely commuter to the mud-obsessed trail rider. It means we’re always on the lookout for people to join us who live life on two wheels and want to share their knowledge with our customers. So we’ve created a place to work that’s stacked full of opportunity, great benefits and the chance to Enjoy The Ride with us.
We’ve come a long way from the local shop in Kennington Road (London) 1921. Back then we made our own bikes, and even won awards for the quality of our service. It was (and still is) all about knowledge, passion and value. And now, despite our nationwide shops and huge online store, these three things are still part of our DNA – we’re still a local bike shop (we just happen to be able to ship the best cycling brands 7 days a week, to more than 200 countries). Today we stock exclusive brands like BMC and Norco. And we’ve been able to create our own cycling brands too with the likes of Pinnacle and FWE. We also work with the biggest names in cycling (like a certain Sir Chris Hoy), so it makes you wonder what’s next in store for us…
What do we stand for...
If our customers are happy, we sleep pretty well at night. So we put customer satisfaction as our top priority, whether it’s a conversation in store or dealing with a new bike delivery. We’re progressive too – happy to take on new innovation as long as it enhances the customer experience. It all comes down to our three core values:
We love to reward our colleagues for the passion and enthusiasm they put into what they do.
- We offer 28 days holiday (including Bank Holidays)
- We offer a company pension scheme where we’ll match your contributions (subject to eligibility criteria)
- We (unsurprisingly) offer a ride to work scheme
- We offer childcare vouchers
- We offer fantastic discounts on all our products, as well as Bike Insurance, British Cycling Council Membership, and Free Entry to our RIDEIT Events
- Healthshields, a cash back health plan
- Our colleague of the month award, the Yellow Jersey
We give our colleagues all the support and training they need to develop their career. It’s about getting that perfect balance of working together, independent thinking and creating a sense of adventure (in whatever form that comes).
Our Retail, Warehouse and Head Office colleagues are supported by:
- A training plan when you join the business
- Half yearly appraisals and a personal development plan review
- Development days
- Bespoke training for specialist roles
- Opportunities to get involved in business-wide projects
People are at the centre of everything we do. So we want to give them the best development opportunities in the UK cycling industry. We provide specialist training for our Workshop teams, in-depth product knowledge courses for our Sales colleagues as well as enhancing our Manager’s leadership skills through our Business Leadership Programme.
It’s where we train colleagues to achieve the IAO qualification a nationally recognised qualifications as Bike Builders and Mechanics. We want you to feel more confident and empowered to improve your work and skills. Our trainer led sessions include theory, demonstrations and practical sessions. And you’ll leave each course with a training pack and action plans to guarantee the training is landed effectively back in your day job.
This is a year-long programme that focuses on fundamental leadership skills and models such as; Situational Leadership, Teambuilding and Motivation, Commercial Awareness, Communication and Emotional Intelligence, Coaching, Problem Solving and Time Management.
We’re full of individuals here at Evans Cycles. From cycling beginners to semi-pro racers, we’re all about celebrating individualism, encouraging collaboration and supporting innovation. Read about some of the adventures from a handful of our talented colleagues here
