When We Need You
From 26/04/2012 onwards
This opportunity offers so much more than just operating a till. We are looking for energetic, enthusiastic people to volunteer in our shop in Glasgow's busy West End. We aim to build a friendly team who can help make our shop the best on the street. We have a lot of stock which needs to be sorted, steamed, ticketed and priced before being stylishly displayed on the shop floor. From magpies desperate to delve into the stockroom and help make our donations shine to bookworms with an eye for a good book… From young pups to wise owls… We'll have a task suited to you. If you are enthusiastic about helping us maintain fantastic shop, we will be delighted to hear from you. HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED? Please complete the REGISTER your INTEREST form and we’ll be in touch within 7 working days. If you have not heard from us within that time please contact the volunteer centre.
About Age Scotland
We work to improve the lives of all people in later life. We celebrate ageing and believe it presents unprecedented opportunities and challenges at home and abroad. We challenge ageist prejudice throughout society. Specifically, I run a charity shop which raises funds to continue Age Scotland's work.
Skills & Experience
We are looking for friendly, polite and enthusiastic individuals to work as part of the team. Our aim will be to offer great customer service whilst working in a friendly, relaxed environment. Many hands make light work… Can you spare a few hours? Why not pop by and say hello?
