Volunteer Shop Assistant for Cancer Research UK
What Our Cancer Research shops do:
Cancer Research UK has always been a volunteer-led organisation, right from our board of trustees to our wonderful shop volunteers. The money raised through our shops last year was over £80 million, which is a testament to the hard work and talent of our shop teams, but we need to recognise the huge potential that still exists to grow our income. In particular, if we can attract more people into our shops and increase customer spend by maximising the appeal of our offer to local shoppers, we will be well on the way to achieving our targets. But we can only do this with the help of our talented and passionate volunteers.
Why we need your support:
Each shop needs a huge, talented and diverse team of volunteers to run successfully. The more volunteers we have the better service we can give to our loyal customers, the more stock we can put on offer and the more money we can make for Cancer Research.
What will you be doing:
Each shop is different and has its own amazing qualities, but requires the same volunteer duties. Each Shop Manager will try to rotate volunteers and give you a variety of duties these may include;
This should give you a small idea of what you’ll be up to in our shops. Our shops provide a fast paced and tough volunteering opportunity but it can be very rewarding.
What we ask from you:
We are always after new Volunteers and understand everyone volunteers for different reasons. We hope that we can suit your needs as much as possible. In return we look for enthusiastic people who are comfortable with a fast paced environment, happy to talk to people and be a smiley face for our customers. We provide lots of training and support so no experience is needed, but if you have experience in customer service or retail that’s a great bonus. We also ask that you can commit to 2 hours + a week but we are flexible and understand your time is valuable.
