eBay Volunteer- Stirling

  • VO89914


Description

Marie Curie has over 30 shops across Scotland which are full of gifts, clothes and even the odd vintage gem. We're looking for a volunteer to help us run our eBay store, selling items online to raise money to support our vital work. You'll be helping us to research and list our items, ensuring we get a good price, and taking photographs that help our items to stand out to shoppers. You will also be handling customer enquiries and packaging the items we sell to send them out to their new homes. If you want to use your skills to help us make a difference and are looking for a role where no two days are the same then this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

Organisation aims and objectives

Every day of your life matters, from the first to the last. We believe everyone living with a terminal illness should be able to get the most from the time they have left, however hard that may sometimes feel. We’ll be here for you and your family when you may feel like no-one else is, to help you cope when you don’t know how. Marie Curie Nurses care for you in your home, when you need them most, day or night. Our hospices are at the heart of communities around the UK. And our trained volunteers and advisers are here for you with practical information and support when you don’t know what to do next or just need to talk. We’ll be by your side with care and support every step of the way, bringing light in the darkest hours.
