Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity is excited to be opening our first ever charity shop and need your help! Our shop will sell a range of baby clothes and products, and will also feature our Wee Activity Zone - a space for special events, soft play and arts & crafts. You’ll help to ensure everything runs smoothly from the retail side of things and that every customer is welcomed and has a positive experience visiting us. Your key duties will be:

  • providing excellent customer service.
  • processing cash and credit card sales and donations.
  • ensuring the shop is clean, tidy, well organised and fully stocked
  • displaying stock to look its best
  • providing visitors with information on GCHC fundraising and events
