Role

Healthy Valleys is a community-led organisation committed to providing outstanding local services that help preserve the mental and physical health and wellbeing of individuals, families, and communities living in rural South Lanarkshire. In 2023 we launched ‘Gear Up’ a new social enterprise dedicated to empowering communities through cycling, walking, and wheeling.

Due to successfully securing new funding from Smarter Choices Smarter Places, we have an exciting opportunity for a skilled and passionate Gear Up Mechanic who will support the maintenance of our bike and eBike fleet, as well as engage our communities with Active Travel and support them to develop their own skills in this field.

You’ll assess, service, repair, and maintain all types of bikes and eBikes, help train others in bike maintenance, and support the development of events and partnerships.

This role is subject to a PVG Disclosure Scotland check, which will be paid by Healthy Valleys.

Due to the requirement to travel around rural communities, the postholder must have a full, clean driving licence, access to their own transport (with appropriate business insurance) and be prepared to drive the Healthy Valleys van.
