Wirral, Merseyside
Job description

Found on high streets up and down the country, our shops are great places to learn new skills and share existing ones. Join our enthusiastic teams and try your hand at all number of tasks, from serving customers on the shop floor, to learning about all the amazing things we get donated, there is truly something for everyone.

Lockdowns - All of our shops in Scotland and Northern Ireland are currently closed due to the national lockdowns. Please check back again nearer to re-opening to apply to volunteer.


Covid19 Health and Safety Statement

Please note those who are clinically extremely vulnerable, those who have received a shielding letter and those unable to wear a mask can only volunteer from home at this time. Unfortunately this means we cannot currently process applications for shop volunteer positions from people in these groups.

Deployment into role will be subject to government guidelines and individual and building risk assessments.

Due to the need to accommodate a fixed number of people at one time in our shops due to coronavirus and current strict social distancing requirements, we regret that we may not be able to accommodate 15-17 year old volunteers in certain locations or at selected times due to a temporary lack of adequate supervision. The shop manager will advise you if this is the case after your application has been received.
