volunteer with us

The Edinburgh Bike Station has a team of around 50 volunteers who are central to our work promoting cycling and increasing bike recycling.

The volunteer team help run the shop; provide advice at Fix Your Own Bike sessions; dismantle non-repairable bikes; sort, save and stock salvaged parts; collect donated bikes; help out at events; and a lot more!

Whether you can spare a few hours, a day or more, then If you would like to volunteer with the Edinburgh Bike Station please download an application form here. This form also contains more information about what volunteering with us entails (please remember to save the form before posting or emailing it back to us at info@thebikestation.org.uk).

We can't guarantee volunteer positions, but we will endeavour to match you to a slot when a suitable opportunity becomes available. Volunteers must be aged 16 or over and unfortunately we cannot offer work experience or one-off placements.
