How many places are on offer?
Running a Barnardo's Charity Shop needs a good team and you could be part of it! Our stores rely on a team of multi-skilled volunteers, from all walks of life who come together to generate vital funds for Barnardo's work with children, young people and their families.
Unlike standard retail outlets, our stores offer a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of the retail operation. Our Volunteer Retail Assistants are trained to assist in a wide range of activities including:
Providing strong customer service.
Serving customers and successfully operating the till.
Replenishing stock by making sure our rails and shelves are well-stocked, visually appealing and tidy.
Merchandising throughout the store.
Stock preparation including sorting, steaming and pricing.
Possible administrative tasks such as stocktaking.
We will provide you with all the support you need to feel confident in your role, with advice and training provided by your store manager and the rest of the team. Volunteering in a Barnardo's charity shop allows you to gain new skills and meet new people whilst making a big difference to the lives of the children and young people Barnardo's work with.
