Voluntary role.
Job description

Online Sales Specialist


We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us sell our fantastic and eclectic donated stock online. Do you have an interest in online sales? Great photography skills? A way with words and a flair for descriptions? A passion for clothes, accessories, homewares, music or books? Can you spare a few hours a week to help us? Full training will be provided.

Main Activities:

  • Preparing items for sale
  • Photographing items
  • Pricing items
  • Researching items
  • Listing items using Oxfam's bespoke online shop tool
  • Packaging and sending out items
  • Promoting Oxfam's values

What we can offer:

Oxfam's core values are empowerment, inclusiveness and accountability, and we stand by these in all aspects of our work. When you volunteer with us you will have the opportunity to develop your skills and bring your own ideas into the shop. You will be warmly welcomed and you will feel a sense of ownership over the work you do. We will provide full training, giving you the benefit of our experience. We provide references for all our volunteers, and we believe nobody should be out of pocket to volunteer with us, so if you live outside Clifton we can help with reasonable travel costs.

What we ask for:

  • Enthusiasm for selling stuff online!
  • A willingness to learn and to work within Oxfam's core values
  • A commitment of a 4 hour shift per week, though we can be flexible on this

What your help will enable us to do:

In 2018/19 Oxfam's retail activities made a total income of £18.11 million to support Oxfam's aim of ending extreme poverty. This enables us to support people to help themselves out of poverty, as well as allowing us to act immediately when a disaster happens - saving lives and providing essential resources to help rebuild communities. Can you help us raise even more money this year? We won't live with poverty. If you feel the same way we would love to work with you!

How to apply:

Simply pop us an email and we will send you a short application form.
