Retail Volunteer

  • VO83335


There are opportunities to work front or back of house in our new retail operation in Leith Walk, from till work to merchandising and window dressing. The back shop is where all the preparation happens, with the sorting, steaming and labelling of items for sale. There are roles in social media cover, general housekeeping, admin, gift aid promotion, brand research and customer care. We run a friendly sociable team in a busy, popular shop and would love to welcome some new volunteers to join us.
