Volunteers are crucial in helping us create a welcoming, friendly and accessible store; a great place for shoppers and donors to visit time and time again.

  • Stock control, rotation and sorting
  • Customer services and till operation

No experience is necessary as full training and an induction will be given. You don't need to be computer literate to join our team; there are volunteer opportunities for all.

When can I volunteer?

This is a flexible role to fit with your lifestyle and around other commitments. Whether you can offer one hour or one day, your time and support are hugely valuable. Our retail operating hours vary but most are 9-5 pm Monday to Saturday with some shops opening on Sundays & bank holidays.

What we can offer you?

  • develop your confidence and interpersonal skills
  • gain invaluable retail experience to add to your CV and learn new skills
  • obtain an NVQ in Retail or Customer Service
