  • One-off volunteering


Description

Urgent call for volunteers to regularly help at the charity shop or more sporadic support as needed.

Volunteers are involved in a wide range of roles and day-to-day activities that support the running and upkeep of each shop. On the shop floor you could be involved with providing excellent customer service, processing transactions on the tills, replenishing stock and putting up eye-catching displays to entice customers in. Behind the scenes, volunteers get involved with sorting through donations to find those hidden gems and preparing goods for sale by sorting, steaming and pricing.

A few hours a week could make a difference.
PDSA positively encourages volunteer applications regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, adults at risk and all our colleagues and expect everyone who works for us to also share this commitment and to treat people with courtesy and respect.
To support this commitment, our recruitment & selection processes are robust and rigorous and all appointments will be subject to satisfactory references and appropriate background checks.

Organisation aims and objectives

PDSA is a charity. We want a lifetime of wellbeing for every pet. Every day, vets in our 48 Pet Hospitals care for sick and injured pets – saving lives, and keeping pets happy and healthy. Pets are part of the family. Our four-legged friends give unconditional love and are sometimes our only companion. They don't deserve to suffer because of financial difficulty or social hardship. They can't help themselves. But we can – with your support. Treating pets is a huge part of what we do…but our work doesn’t stop there. We’re a leading authority on pet health and wellbeing: from raising awareness of pet obesity to surveying the state of Britain’s pet nation; raising the status of animals to celebrating their contribution to our lives. But we can’t do any of it without you. Your support is invaluable to keeping our doors open and helping us be there when pets need us most.
