Categories: Retail

What would I be doing?

We are on the lookout for till Operators! The role is essential to the success of our shops. As the main point of contact for customers and supporters, you’ll not only help to take and process payments, but you’ll also be the face of Claire House in your local community.
Tasks will also include accepting donations, proudly representing our charity and helping to keep an eye on the shop floor.

There’s plenty of other fun things to do in our shops, from sorting donations to creating window displays and it’s great if you’re looking to gain experience and skills for your CV. Most importantly, you’ll be helping to raise much-needed funds to support our incredible children and families.

What skills do I need?

We are looking for enthusiastic and friendly people who are able to donate their time, either as much or as little as they can. We are flexible in our shops to fit around people’s busy lifestyle. From one day a month to one day a week, people’s time given makes a huge difference to local children and families.

About Claire House Childrens Hospice

Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life.

By providing specialist nursing care and emotional support we help families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher. Claire House has a team of trained professionals who are as passionate about what they do as they are talented at doing it. Claire House is about far more than just care. It is a place for children to relax and enjoy themselves, whatever their age. They can have fun in our multi-sensory room, art room, hydrotherapy pool and jacuzzi.

There is a separate wing complete with bar, sound system and Xbox for teenagers and young adults. Whilst their children are having fun, mums and dads get the chance to enjoy some much-needed time off together or the opportunity to spend time with their other children. Claire House Children’s Hospice simply couldn’t exist without the support of volunteers. Claire House achieved the Queen’s Award for voluntary services in 2018 which is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK.
