Shop Assistant

  • VO71372


Description

We have exciting opportunities for people to volunteer at our stores! Unlike standard retail outlets, our stores offer a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of the retail operation. Our Volunteer Retail Assistants are trained to undertake a wide range of activities including: * Providing strong customer service. * Serving customers at the till. * Taking receipt of stock donations from the public, thanking them for their generosity and finding out if they are Gift Aid Donors. * Signing up new Gift Aid Donors (this raises an extra 25p per pound for Marie Curie from the sale of donations and does not cost donors anything). * Replenishing stock by making sure our rails and shelves are well-stocked, visually appealing and tidy. * Merchandising throughout the store. * Stock preparation including sorting, steaming and pricing. * Possible administrative tasks such as stocktaking. * If you have a particular skill or interest, our team would be delighted to discuss how you could utilise it in store!
Want to improve your CV, meet new people and have fun whilst supporting the work of Marie Cure? Why not consider becoming a Marie Curie retail volunteer?
Some give us two hours a week, others give us 20, but no matter what, they are all making a vital contribution towards the charity’s work.
So why not turn your everyday into something that makes a difference.
