Volunteer Shop Floor Sales Assistants

As a volunteer shop floor sales assistant you will be working as part of a team where your main duties will include serving customers on the till, keeping the shop looking clean and tidy, promoting gift-aid among donors and customers, and organising and pricing a wide range of donated items. If you are interested you could also be given responsibility for looking after a specific department within the shop e.g. Bric-A-Brac.

2 hour slots are available.


No specific qualifications are required for these roles. We only ask that applicants be friendly, hard-working, reliable & able to work on their initiative. Being familiar with till operation would be a plus but full training is given.

In both volunteer roles available you will be working alongside other volunteers and around our customers, the general public.
