Job Description

We have a brand new Oxfam shop opening in Kingston in March 2019, and we are currently recruiting a whole team of volunteers to help us to make it amazing!

If you are available short or longer term, and either have some skills you wish to share or skills you wish to gain, then we would love to hear from you.

We are currently recruiting for till volunteers willing to work for either 4 or 8 hours per week across one or two days. No experience is needed as all training is given. We pay reasonable travel expenses and if you volunteer for a full day we also pay a lunch allowance.

If till work isn't for you, we also are recruiting for the following volunteer roles:

  • Donation sorters (back of house role, great for those wanting to be part of a team and build confidence/ make new friends without being in a customer facing role - as many or few hours per week as you wish)
  • Finance volunteers (no experience needed, but being numerate and having good attention to detail helps - this role takes about 4-5 hours a week)
  • H&S volunteer (can be an ad hoc role but ideally once per week for a couple of hours)
  • Social Media/ Community engagement volunteers (can be ad hoc, essentially a role to help get us connected with the local community)
  • Admin volunteer (4 or so hours per week - online ordering of shop supplies and new products, dealing with enquiries in to the shop etc - great if you want to demonstrate admin experience on a CV or utilise your admin skills)
  • Bit-of-everything people (for those who aren't too worried what they do, but are just keen to get involved/ gain experience/ meet new people)

Also welcome - good-cup-of-tea makers, people with a good artistic eye for window / shop dressing, anyone with a specialist interest - e.g. Bric a Brac, books, fashion. You don't need to commit to anything on-going or open ended, we will happily accept volunteers looking for a few weeks work experience or those available for a fixed time.

We welcome all, and no experience whatsoever is necessary. This will be an entirely new team so if you would like to be involved in any capacity, we would love to meet you. Applications via Indeed for now, but we are also holding an open session on March 12th over lunch time to show interested volunteers around - do get in touch if you'd like to come along and have a chat.

Thank you for your support!
