The truth is that we are always on the lookout for exceptional people; people to work in our customer service department, people to work with us on our e-commerce site, and so on. If the right person comes along, we’ll always find a position for them; it’s that simple. But right now we are looking specifically for people to work in our shop.

Now if you haven’t visited us, you may not know about our shop. It is like no other motorcycle apparel store in the country. In fact, there’s probably none like it anywhere. It works on the basis of highly personal, one-to-one service. This is not a shop for browsing. People come from all over the country to visit us. And when they get here they may be in for a little wait. And that’s because they can only come into the shop when there is one of us free to serve them.

But when they do come into the shop they expect the very highest level of knowledge and expertise from people who know what they are talking about. Many of our customers have done a lot of research before they visit us, but they expect to be challenged on the choices they have in mind if they are not correct for the kind of riding they are going to be doing.

To make this possible, we have a better range of technical products than any shop in the UK. And this means we can normally find the right solution for just about everybody. As a shop, we don’t do cheap gear. We don’t do gear for sportsbike riders and we don’t do what we would term proper off-road gear. Rather we cater for the leisure rider, commuters, those who do long tours and those who ride adventure bikes.

We are looking for people who know the industry, and who have worked within it; ideally on the clothing side. You will need to know your onions. You will need to be confident enough to challenge customer perceptions. And you will need to energetic, because we do not cut corners when it comes to making sure that our customers leave contented with both what they have bought and the experience they have had.

But this is a good place to work. There is a strong motorcycling culture here. We do a lot of fun stuff, as a group, but also with customers. The working week is just 37.5 hours. Monday to Saturday, 9.30 am to 5.30 pm. We take breaks when we can. And you will earn more here than you would in any other clothing store in the country. In fact, we’re told that very few, if any, motorcycle sales people selling for the major brands will earn what our people here do. There are, of course, rewards for delivering exceptional customer service, although we do not work to targets. This is not the place to come if you’re not prepared to stand up and be counted. But if you are made of the right stuff and help us deliver the kind of service our customers expect, then you will be well rewarded in every sense!

If you think you have the credentials and the experience that fit the bill, send a short summary letter with a CV to jobs@motolegends.com. But before you do you should watch our video on the ‘10 reasons not to visit Motolegends'. It may well give you a flavour for who we are.

We serve customers on a ‘one-to-one’ basis in what is basically a personal shopping model. Your job is to sell customers the right gear for their needs as quickly and efficiently as possible (because there are probably more customers outside in the waiting area waiting to come in).
