Join the team at our busy, friendly and very popular shop

Shop work / Retail volunteers needed for Age UK Caversham Shop in RG4

Would you like to join the team at our busy, friendly and very popular Charity Shop in Caversham? We have many volunteers and are currently looking for more to replace the ones who have gained so much work experience and confidence that they’ve left us due to finding paid employment.

In particular we are looking for volunteers to work in the shop. No experience? No problem. If you are keen to learn and want a chance to prove yourself in a working environment we could be the ones to help. If you don’t want to work in the shop to start with, that’s fine. Many of our more reserved volunteers have started at the back of the shop and soon gained enough confidence to venture out with the customers and found they have really enjoyed it.

Call or pop in for a chat, see for yourself, we are a very friendly bunch!
