How can you help?

Cash Desk Assistants

You will learn to operate a computerised till, process cash and credit card transactions. You will need to be able to engage with our customers from all walks of life in making the most of every sales opportunity, promoting our latest campaigns, signing up to Gift-aid and assisting with stock processing and replenishing stock on the shop floor.

Sales Floor Assistants

Do you have a flair for fashion? An eye for décor? An interest in helping our customers find what they want? Then we want to hear from you. Duties include filling our rails and shelves with pre-loved items ensuring plenty of stock is on sale. Dressing windows, creating eye catching displays to entice and invite our customers to browse and buy.   You will be on hand to assist our customers with in-store donations and engage with them to sign up to gift-aid.

Stock Room Assistants

If you like a more behind-the-scene role, then this may be for you.  We need volunteers to help sort through our donations. It’s like Christmas every day! We never know what to expect. From clothes, shoes, handbags, bric-a-brac, books, toys, DVD’s, CD’s, Vinyl’s plus lots more and it all needs sorting, tagged, hanged, bagged or boxed ready for sale. This role can include use of steamer, training provided.

Book Enthusiast

Are you a lover of all things’ books? Do you know your fiction from non-fiction. How would you like the opportunity to discover a first edition or a collectible manuscript! We are looking for volunteers who are organised, methodical with a great eye for spotting the right read for the right time. Full training and guidance will be provided with on-going support.

Jewellery and Accessories

Like a bit of bling, a bit of glitz and glamour? Then you might like to volunteer to help merchandise our jewellery and accessories.  It’s the make or break of any outfit. You need a sparkly eye for detail, the patience of a saint to be able to detangle, organise and display all our pretty things. Full training and guidance will be provided with on-going support.


No home is complete without that little ornament sitting on the sideboard, or the gorgeous candle holder, the vintage tea set, or the must-have kitchen gadget. We need volunteers who enjoy sorting, cleaning and displaying a varied range of nik-naks.  Additionally, soft furnishings, household linen, curtains and bedding complement our Bric-a-brac department.


What we require from you

  • A willingness to learn (some of these skills you will already have, and others may require training, which we will provide for you)
  • Willing to uphold shop standards through various cleaning tasks
  • Excellent customer service skills
  • Reliable and good timekeeping
  • Physically able to carry out allocated tasks
