Mechanic/Bike Repair Program Coordinator (part-time/seasonal)
The Mechanic/Bike Repair Program Coordinator manages the Boston Cyclists Union’s bike repair programs. They coordinate Bike to Market events, communicate with volunteers to support BCU’s repair programs, conduct community outreach to raise awareness about the BCU’s programs and advocacy, supervise 1 other mechanic and all volunteer mechanics, and perform administrative tasks related to programs, such as inventory management and ordering parts.
This position is part time and seasonal, ideally from late May until the end of September. Exact start and end date are flexible. Hours will vary somewhat during this period, averaging 30-35/week while Bike to Market is holding events (late June — early September.) Before and after the peak, the Coordinator will work a minimum of 10-15 hours per week to ramp up and wind down the summer repair season.
The Events Coordinator plays a central role in managing the Boston Cyclists Union’s (BCU) membership, fundraising, events, and volunteer activities. They help plan and execute fundraising events, like Biketoberfest and Bostreal; maintain our database of 12,000+ contacts; grow the organization’s membership by developing and implementing strategies for recruitment, engagement, and retention; collaborate with staff and partners to explore other fundraising and development opportunities; and support the organization more broadly through managing some administrative tasks. Through this work, they will fulfill the BCU’s goals of growing our network, building the bike community, and expanding our base of support from individuals, businesses and organizations.
