Retail Stock Room Volunteer

  • VO90028


If you’re a keen rummager and like things to be neat and tidy, then we have a role for you - helping in our retail stock room to sort the fantastic donations we receive behind the scenes. If you love a bit of ironing, then master the steamer and watch those wrinkles disappear (it’s surprisingly therapeutic!) or become a tagging extraordinaire, allowing customers to understand what item they are purchasing.

Whether you’re a lover of vintage clothing, films, books, vinyl records or stunning jewellery – or perhaps you just fancy the company of other friendly volunteers away from the shop floor whilst making a difference - our retail stock room role is the place to be behind the scenes.

Typical tasks include:

· Sorting out donated items and preparing them for sale

· Using a clothes steamer and tagging price labels on to clothing items

· Identifying unsaleable donations for recycling

· Keeping the sort room organised and tidy

· Looking after a certain department based on your interests alongside paid staff

· Acting as an ambassador for the British Heart Foundation
