Why do we have a Graduate Scheme?

There are many other innovations and projects we have in store and we'd love you to be part of them. We strongly believe in the creative thinking of passionate graduates and the great ideas that they can come up with. Our small, but rapidly developing company is the perfect place for personal growth and has proven to be a rapid learning curve for everyone here and we think it will be the same for everyone else who joins us. 

If you have a passion for the sport of cycling and want to be more involved, this is an unmissable opportunity, as we are one of the only companies in the cycling industry who offer a graduate scheme. 

This unique opportunity provides the chance to join our team and work in many areas of the business over the course of the 2-year scheme. We strongly believe that learning multiple aspects of the business will aid in your personal and professional development. After having discovered and performed the daily tasks of pretty much everyone in the business over the 2-year scheme, you will have the chance to follow your own path and further develop into a specific role which fits both yourself and the business as a whole. 

We consider ourselves a family, and outside of the working hours, our family of riders goes on all kinds of rides, whether it's summer or winter! 

You'll also have the chance to go to represent the brands at a range of events, from supporting our athletes to industry shows, where you can see the latest and greatest.

- We also have Flarebar Thursdays: the gravel ride that is muddy fun for all, tackling the local bridleways. 

- Heavily discounted bikes, parts, clothing and accessories (you'll not be short of free HUNT bike clothing and wheels).
