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 one of our workshops (Guildford or Walton-on-Thames). We would like you to be:
(Really really) Interested in bikes and want to pass it on – a bike rider and be familiar with common maintenance procedures
Interested in meeting and working alongside young people and celebrating their achievements
All volunteers will be required to complete a DBS check and/or be on DBS update service
Give time regularly through the week – for example a normal routine is one day each week 9.30am-4pm
Different roles might be:
- Volunteer Mechanic in the workshop – servicing and refurbishing bikes, triaging donated bikes, dealing with customers, requires a reasonable level of experience riding and good level of competence working on bikes. Have a look at the role description here.
- 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.
