Volunteering at Bike Project Surrey is fun and you get to learn together about all aspects of bike maintenance in one of our working workshops. We’re always looking for volunteers to give their time and help in the shop (Southway, Guildford) or one of our workshops (Guildford or Walton-on-Thames). We would like you to be:
(Really) Interested in bikes and want to pass it on – a bike rider
Interested in meeting and working alongside young people and celebrating their achievements
Prepared to complete a DBS check and/or be on DBS update service
Give time regularly through the week – for example a routine day each week (9.30am-4pm)
Different roles might be:
- Volunteer Mechanic in the workshop – servicing and refurbishing bikes, dealing with customers, requires a reasonable level of experience riding and/or working on bikes.
- Assistant Tutor Mechanic Assistant – supporting our Tutor Mechanics to works with students who are not in school.
Volunteer in the yard – sorting donated bikes, washing bikes, breaking bikes up for parts, tidying, receiving customers, getting bikes out and generally getting involved.
- Volunteer Office Assistant – answering calls, data entry, simple office duties.
