Tayside Re-Users try their best to avoid ditching furniture in landfill. Some of the household goods we receive require upholstering to make them suitable for resale in our shop. We have a dedicated area for upholstery but the ideal volunteer would be looking to develop their existing upholstery skills.
As an environmental charity, we aim to keep as much as we can out of landfill. One of our main areas of work is recycling electrical goods. This involves recording incoming goods, cleaning and repair and PAT Testing. This role would suit someone who is familiar with the workings of white goods and able to carry out repairs. If you are interested in a diverse role which can help the community, this one is for you!

The media co-ordinator will be asked to create a live feed during event delivery and also use pictures and film to bring our projects to life. The co-ordinator will support the development of our website through updates.
Save the Children are looking to engage as many people as possible to get them donating, fundraising and raising awareness. You can help this process through your local networks. This is a terrific role for you to get stuck into and all you’ll need is a computer and a phone.
By researching local businesses, schools and organisations, you’ll also look for potential opportunities and different ways to promote local fundraising activities happening in your community. So, you’ll need to feel confident speaking to different people over the phone, using the internet to carry out research and creating a spreadsheet or report for your Community Fundraising Manager. And once you've done that, you could get involved in the organisation and delivery of different events and initiatives. Each local community is different and with your help we can make the most of the interests and opportunities your local one provides.

Some donations which Tayside Re-users receive are not suitable for restoring to their original condition and these are upcycled into something new instead. For this, Tayside Re-users need a Paint Sprayer. This will involve using our spray booth and spray equipment to upcycle household goods and furniture. This opportunity would suit someone who is considering a trade as a career. Paint spraying experience is preferred but basic training can be given.
