Here at OxfamEdinburgh we're dedicated to fighting poverty and inequality. Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. We respond fast in emergencies, work on long-term projects with communities and campaign for genuine, lasting change. Our volunteers, staff, and those we aim to influence are all guided by our values of empowerment, accountability, and inclusiveness.
A lot of our work happens behind the scenes, sorting donations, keeping organised & tidy, valuing & pricing goods, drinking tea...
We ask for 4 -8 hours per week. We can be very flexible around parenting / caring / health / employment / education and any other commitments you may have. Some travel and lunch expenses can be covered too so you won’t be out of pocket whist volunteering with us.
Currently we are looking for volunteers to help on:
- Tuesday Afternoon
- Wednesday Afternoon
- Saturday Morning
If you have a couple of hours to give to Oxfam, then we'd like to hear from you.
We want to hear from you if you are:
- Reliable and honest
- Willing to learn new skills
What will you gain from this opportunity?
- You will be joining thousands of volunteers who “won’t live with poverty”.
- Learn about Oxfam’s humanitarian, development, and campaigning work.
- Opportunity to utilise and develop your portfolio of skills and experience.
- Gain valuable experience in retail at an international charity.
