Shop Assistant

Join one of our retail teams

We have shops in and around Milton Keynes and always need an extra pair of hands to help us! Typical tasks will include serving customers, operating the till, sorting donations, pricing and preparing goods for sale and keeping the shop looking clean, interesting and attractive.

Shop volunteers receive on-the-job training, ongoing support and further development opportunities if desired, including cashing up and performing opening and closing duties.

Hours available

Shifts can be flexible to suit you but are usually 4 hours, weekdays and weekends between 9am and 5pm.

A trial session can be arranged for you.
