Hub City Cycles is looking to diversify our co-op team with a new position. We have been referring to this position as the ‘front-line’. While perhaps on the surface this person may seem like the cashier they will do many important things at HCC. From greeting customers, helping facilitate our fleet of rental bikes, running the cash, writing for our newsletter and blog, and helping to keep our shop organized.
As an employee with our co-op, you will be part owner and have a great opportunity to explore different ways to contribute to, and build this young organization into something even better. We need someone who is willing to commit to helping us grow in the long term.
We strive to be a resource that nourishes the neighborhoods in and around downtown Nanaimo. We provide affordable bicycle-centric services and advocacy that build, empower and support healthy and sustainable communities. We offer a safe and welcoming space for people to learn, share skills and network with other community members.
