Help make today matter by supporting the Ayrshire Hospice as a Merchandising Assistant in our Hospice Shops.

Do you have a passion for fashion and love working with people?
Then we have a new exciting opportunity for you.

Volunteering is always in style!
Volunteers play a huge part in the running of our stores. Our retail chain could not function without the support they provide. We have various volunteer opportunities in our stores in our locations throughout Ayrshire.

As a merchandising Assistant you would utilise your creativity and imagination by creating window and in store displays. You would select pieces from the bank of stock and turn it into something eye catching and tempting for our customers.

To read the full role description visit Benefits of Volunteering with Ayrshire Hospice: Volunteering with us is flexible and fits around work and life commitments. Giving just 2 to 4 hours per week can make a real difference.

Volunteering is a great opportunity to meet new people and be included in a caring, diverse group of people and perhaps even make some new friends for life! Many volunteers feel a sense of belonging as they have a chance to make a difference to others’ lives and be part of something more.

The knowledge and skills used in all of our volunteer roles can be great for students looking to enhance their experience and CV to give them an edge in future job applications. Regardless of your reasons for wanting to volunteer we hope that you, along with our other volunteers have fun and enjoy any amount of time you are able to have with us!

Care is provided by hospice staff in a number of places including people’s own homes, hospitals and care homes as well as in the hospice’s purpose built day care centre and in-patient unit.The hospice not only takes care of people’s physical needs but look after their emotional, spiritual and social needs too.
