Barnardo’s Shop – Retail

About this opportunityBarnardo's_logo

There are a range of opportunities available within the shops, including stock room volunteers and volunteer retail assistants. Volunteers can choose what they want to do in the shop, for example, it’s not expected that volunteers have to operate the till if they don’t feel confident in doing so.

It is essential that you are interested in spending time around customers. Enjoy rummaging through donated goods to find the items which will draw people to the shop.
