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 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.
