Love Books? Look no further for your perfect volunteering opportunity. Join the team at the British Heart Foundation shop in Elgin sorting, pricing and displaying merchandise in their book department!

If you’d like to make a difference behind the scenes, if you’re a keen rummager or if you like things to be neat and tidy, then we have a role for you - helping in our shop stock room. If you love a bit of ironing, then master the clothes steamer and watch those wrinkles disappear (it’s surprisingly therapeutic!), or become a clothes tagger extraordinaire, allowing customers to understand what item they are purchasing. If you want a hands-on role behind the scenes or just fancy the company of other friendly volunteers our shop stock room is the place to be. Typical tasks include: Preparing donated items for sale Using a clothes steamer Attaching labels and tags to donated items ready for sale Identifying unsaleable donations for recycling Keeping the sort room organised and tidy

Could you be the friendly face of our local British Heart Foundation store? With support around you and full training provided, you will be processing sales through the till as a cashier, talking to customers and thanking donors. This is a customer focussed role where you will meet and interact with a wide range of people. Typical tasks include: Engaging with customers and serving them in a helpful and friendly way Answering questions from customer, donors and supporters Communicating with fellow volunteers about what has sold and needs re-stocking Honing your retail and cashier skills behind the till and taking payments Helping with administration and reception duties around the till area
