Job vacancy – Frame Painter / Assistant Frame Painter

We’re busy. Very busy – and require a frame painter to join the Shand team.

Main duties will include the preparation and painting of all our frames from bare metal through primer and base coats to final lacquer. Graphics are applied with paint, so neat application of graphic masks (as well as stainless steel dropouts etc) is important to achieve a flawless final finish. Some light metalwork (filing) may also be involved as part of the prep work.

Experience in spray painting is not strictly necessary (training will be provided), but the ability to demonstrate good hand/eye co-ordination, an obsessive attention to detail and patience with lengthy prep work is vital. A passion for cycling and all things bike would also be advantageous.

If you think you fit the bill and would enjoy a hard-working, but relaxed atmosphere with a team dedicated to making the best bikes we can, send your CV for the attention of Russ at

The position is located at our workshop in Livingston and salary will be based on experience.

Flawless black paint finish

Some nice feedback


Photo (iPhone I’m afraid so not great) taken half way round a very nice 70 mile run. Bike looks great and rides just as well. Fits very well indeed so not sure any adjustment will be needed.

Thank you all very much indeed. I’m delighted. All that was expected and a bit more!

Have a good weekend.


Thanks Andrew!
