Description

Whatever your area of interest Oxfam will have a role to enjoy, whether it be face to face customer service or behind the scenes. You will be an important member of our friendly team.
At Oxfam we're dedicated to fighting poverty and inequality. Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. We respond fast in emergencies, work on long-term projects with communities and campaign for genuine, lasting change. Our volunteers, staff, and those we aim to influence are all guided by our values of empowerment, accountability, and inclusiveness.
Volunteering can help build your confidence, develop skills, and meet new people all whilst helping to end poverty.
We can be very flexible around parenting / caring / health / employment / education and any other commitments you may have.
You can help behind the scenes or on the shop floor and you can branch out into different areas and do extra training. For example, team leader, online retail, social media, admin & accountancy roles, community outreach, and events organising.
