Selkirk West Port General Retail Assistant - Barnardo's Scotland

  • VO77938


Description

Running a successful Barnardo's store requires a great team of enthusiastic volunteers and you could be a part of it.

Our retail assistants are trained to undertake a wide range of activities such as serving customers, taking receipt of stock donations from the public and merchandising stock to make our rails/shelves are visually appealling and tidy.

Volunteering with us in retail will provide a great opportunity to build upon your communication, team working and customer service skills.

If you also have a particular skill or interest, our teams would be delighted to discuss how we could help you utilise your interests in store. Whatever your talents, please do share with us and pop into your local store to enquire about volunteering.
