Could you be the face of your local British Heart Foundation shop in Craigmillar? You will be serving customers, using the till, talking to customers about our stock and awareness campaigns and encouraging every donor to become part of our Gift Aid scheme.

Say hello to the team

Funding for researchers begins at your local charity shop. Last year our British Heart Foundation UK charity shops across the UK raised an incredible £28 million – this wouldn’t have been possible without our fantastic volunteers.

Our team is bright and bubbly, and we love meeting people from all walks of life.

Typical tasks include:

· Interacting with customers and serving them in a helpful and friendly way

· Operating the till and taking payments

· Promoting Gift Aid

· Acting as an ambassador for British Heart Foundation always

You get a lot from volunteering too:

· A chance to work in a friendly team, to make new friends and meet a diverse group of people

· The opportunity to make an invaluable contribution to British Heart Foundation goal of beating heartbreak forever

· The time to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills

· The ability to gain valuable work experience to add onto your CV and to learn new skills

· Flexibility to fit with your lifestyle
