Tredz Jobs

Tredz Exists to Serve Cyclists

We want to support & increase the footprint of cycling and be known as the best in class of bicycle retailers with our service, selection and price.

It’s not HR gibberish to say none of that is possible without great people. We might operate on the internet (alongside physical stores) but everything we do needs human beings to pull the strings: customer contact, parcel dispatch, marketing, technical services, web code, etc, etc.

To that end, our senior management team try to help employees bring their best selves to work. The better the people, the better the result for our customers. Is that where you come in?

Life at Tredz

Tredz Shop Team

We are a hardworking bunch that take pride in punching above our weight. Small beginnings have seen us morph into several departments with a team of around 80 colleagues.

We plan on growing, and growing fast. We change more in a year than other firms might in three years. There are some quieter corners of the company but if change, pace and responsibility are your bag then this is definitely somewhere you can thrive.

Why Work at Tredz?

Tredz Customer Service Team

We don’t have endless organisational structures and a long corporate ladder to climb but we certainly offer a vibrant, energising environment with huge opportunity for those who want to develop. The majority of our senior team started life with smaller roles and have taken more responsibility filling larger shoes over time.

Bikes are in our DNA but we don’t expect you to be an elite racer or a hard-core adventurer. We want you for your skills and wherewithal, rather than for your hobbies (i.e. bike knowledge isn’t essential). Other skills are as attractive to us as industry knowledge.
