Rainbow Turtle was set up in Paisley in 2002 to raise public awareness of fair trade and encourage more people to buy fairly traded products. The shop, at 7 Gauze Street in the centre of Paisley, is run by volunteers and we're now seeking more people who are willing to help. The Volunteer Shop Assistant role involves serving customers, stocking shelves, keeping the shop clean and tidy, and answering customer queries. Volunteers generally do at least one 3 hour shift in the shop each week, operating in pairs, although we're also interested in someone able to help on a more flexible basis. This would be an excellent opportunity for someone who is looking to gain retail and customer care experience, as well as for those interested in fair trade, global citizenship, and charitable work more generally.
