Current opportunities

R:evolve clothing shops are not just your average charity shop; they are unique second-hand boutiques with a West End feel without the West End price tag. R:evolve are funded by the Climate Challenge Fund to encourage people to think differently about the impact fashion has on the environment and asks their customers to use R:evolve to swap their clothes instead of buying something new. They are looking for volunteers to join their organisation as Swap Shop Assistants - helping their customers swap their unwanted clothes for some pre-loved items that they would like instead. Tasks include: welcoming customers, recording incoming/outgoing items, sorting/steaming clothes, displaying stock and promoting the services locally. If you are looking to give something to your community, gain work experience, meet new people, or are interested in fashion or the environment, then why not get in touch?
