Retail Stock Room Volunteer

If you’re a keen rummager and like things to be neat and tidy, then we have a role for you - helping in our retail stock room to sort the fantastic donations we receive behind the scenes. If you love a bit of ironing, then master the steamer and watch those wrinkles disappear (it’s surprisingly therapeutic!) or become a tagging extraordinaire, allowing customers to understand what item they are purchasing.

Whether you’re a lover of vintage clothing, films, books, vinyl records or stunning jewellery – or perhaps you just fancy the company of other friendly volunteers away from the shop floor whilst making a difference - our retail stock room role is the place to be behind the scenes.

Typical tasks include:

  • Sorting out donated items and preparing them for sale
  • Using a clothes steamer and tagging price labels on to clothing items
  • Identifying unsaleable donations for recycling
  • Keeping the sort room organised and tidy

You get a lot from volunteering too:

  • A chance to work in a friendly team, make new friends & meet a diverse group
  • The feel-good factor of helping the British Heart Foundation beat heartbreak forever
  • The time to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills
  • The ability to gain valuable retail experience to add to your CV and learn new skills
  • Flexibility to fit with your lifestyle around your other commitments
  • Reasonable travel reimbursed in agreement with the Manager
  • 25% volunteer discount on donated goods
