Charity Shop Assistant

Our network of 450 retail stores represents the charity in many communities and on numerous high- streets and retail parks across the UK. Our shop teams are the friendly faces of our stores. They are made up of staff and volunteers who undertake equally important roles.

We stock a wonderful selection of items, ranging from everyday casual wear to bridal wear to bric-a- brac, all at affordable prices.

As a Sue Ryder Shop Volunteer you will have the opportunity to be involved in many aspects of the day to day running of the store including but not limited to….

• Sorting and pricing stock

• Stock replenishment

• General customer service

• Till work

• Window Dressing

• If cleaning is your favourite thing to do, we also have opportunities to help keep our stores safe and hygienic.

In return for your enthusiasm, you will have the opportunity to be part of a wonderful team, gain new skills and experience, and most importantly contribute towards making a difference to our service users and their families.


You don’t need any experience to join us as a volunteer you just need to be willing and helpful with a flexible and enthusiastic approach.
