We are looking for enthusiastic, creative and reliable volunteers to join us in our Caversham shop

Shop work / Retail volunteer needed for Thames Hospice in RG4

We opened our Caversham shop in September 2019 to help Thames Hospice generate the income to provide services and care to patients with life limiting illness and to support their families and carers.

We are looking for enthusiastic, creative and reliable volunteers to join us in the shop.

There are a range of opportunities to suit you:

  • Talking to customers and making them feel welcome in the shop
  • Advising and helping customers as they browse
  • Visual merchandising- ensuring the shop looks it’s best and is on-trend
  • Receive donated goods and sort, price and prepare for sale
  • Operating the till and dealing with various types of payment
  • Answering customer enquiries
  • Keeping an eye on the security of the shop
  • Maintain a clean and safe working environment
  • Promote Gift Aid, the Hospice Lottery and other incentives

There are shifts available each day and at the weekend.
Register for a taster session today.
