Volunteer in a shop

More than 700 people volunteer for us in our 27 shops. Their efforts make a huge difference – our shops provide us with over 10% of our income. There are plenty of different roles available, in a range of locations. So why not consider joining our team? It’s a great chance to gain new skills and meet new people.

Here are just a few ways you could get involved:

Serving customers – Are you a great team player? Do you enjoy meeting people and sharing common interests? Do you want to build a CV in sales and people skills? This could be just the right role for you!

Sorting our donations and getting them ready for sale – Do you have an eye for a great bargain? Are you able to identify quality items? Think you can make sure that the right stock goes out for sale? This could be just the right role for you!

Window dressing and displays – Do you have creative flair? Can you come up with new ideas and eye catching window themes? Will you bring fresh eyes to our visual merchandising? You may be an art or design student or someone with a natural talent for display. This could be just the right role for you!

Do you have a particular area of interest? Books, jewellery, homewares – focus on one area, share your skills and help us make the most of our donations.
