Why work with us?

Flexible working hours

At The Bike Project, we know all our staff are deeply committed to our cause, love their jobs, and want to do well. This is great because we do expect hard work, passion, commitment, but we also want staff to have a good work-life balance and do not expect them to be working a lot of extra hours on a regular basis. We therefore have a truly flexible approach to working hours and a TOIL policy so that staff can manage busy projects without damaging their overall work-life balance.

Free bike

All staff are entitled to one free bike up to the value of £400, subject to eligibility criteria. We also offer additional discounts on bike parts and cycling accessories. After two years of employment, staff are entitled to exchange their bike for another one, up to the value of £400, so long as the original bike is donated back to The Bike Project.

Lifetime bike service

For those who have received a bike from us, we will offer a lifetime of free service and repairs for the duration of your employment, so long as this doesn’t impact customer servicing. Eligibility criteria apply.

Professional development and training

The Bike Project aims to provide varied and rewarding roles, a supportive and ethical culture, lots of opportunities for development and progression as well as competitive levels of pay to retain a suitably skilled and experienced professional staff. We have an appraisal scheme that focuses on development, a range of training available around topics such as personal productivity, mental health fitness, culture and values training, as well as training specifically tailored to individual roles.

Holidays

We offer 28 days holiday, including bank holidays, and we close the office in between Christmas and New Year, adding another three days holiday. Staff accrue an extra day for every year of service, up to a maximum of 33 days per annum. Sabbaticals are available for staff with long service.

Family and sick leave

We offer enhanced maternity pay (13 weeks full pay, including statutory maternity leave and thirteen weeks half pay) subject to eligibility criteria. We also offer enhanced paternity pay of three weeks full pay.

For sick leave, we offer two weeks full pay and two weeks half pay.

Pensions

We offer a pension scheme with an employers’ contribution of 4 % and employees’ contribution of 4%.

Social activities

We hold cycle rides as part of team-building including Ride London and social rides throughout the year. There’s also quarterly staff lunches, an annual away day and outings like pub quizzes and picnics.
