Time Commitment: Fridays 2.30 - 6

Specific Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Triaging bikes to see what work needs to be done, signing each person in on a sign in sheet and managing expectations by being clear about wait times etc.
  • Having an overview of what is going on in the workshop and an idea of how long each young person will have to wait
  • Follow Bristol Bike Project policies and procedures when volunteering, these are available in the Volunteer Handbook on the website 

This session will be fast paced and intense, so some experience working with young people is necessary - this a great way to gain more experience! You will need to be able to talk to young people, hold boundaries and manage stressful situations.

We will get you a DBS check if you don’t already have one on the update system.
