WMB Logistics, a Gloucester-based logistics company specialising in bike transport, storage and asset management, recently announced that the company was on the lookout for an official ‘bike tester’ within the UK, offering a generous £27k salary. 1,356 bike lovers have applied from all over the world, with applications closing Tuesday 31st October.
The team at WMB Logistics (wmbpride.bike) recently announced that they were on the lookout to recruit a ‘bike tester’ to join the expanding business. The role is aimed at someone with a passion for motorbikes, and will see them become one of the first people in the UK to ride and test the very latest bikes as they enter the UK from a number of leading maufacturers.
The job spec stated that applicants must be 21 years of age or older, with a passion for bikes, have held a full category A motorbike licence for a minimum of 12 months, have no points on their licence and be willing and able to travel to Gloucester for one day each week.
With a salary of £27k per annum (pro rata), the company has seen 1,356 applicants so far, most of whom live in the UK, but also from as far as America, Bangladesh, Iran and Australia. Applications have also been sent in from Championship winning rally drivers, Advanced Police Motorcyclists and those working in the F1 & Motorsport industry. One applicant also went as far as creating a YouTube video explaining why he feels he is perfect for the job.
The application process remains open for a few more days, and the successful applicant will be required to ride brand new bikes in order to add miles to them and meet the manufacturers pre-delivery inspection (PDI) compliance. They will also be required to help clean the bikes once they’ve been taken out for a ride, maintaining the showroom quality finish, as well as being able to tell, hear and feel when something needs to be adjusted on the bike or looked at by the in-house mechanic.
Anyone wishing to apply for the job must do so before 11:59pm Tuesday 31st October via the following link: www.wmblogistics.co.uk/dream-job-alert.
