Retail Assistant for Claire House Childrens Hospice

Role Type: Casual
Based: Appleton & Stockton Heath
Categories: Retail
Availability: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

What would I be doing?

Retail assistants are a crucial part of our volunteer team at Claire House and help to raise vital funds and awareness to support children and families.
At the heart of their local community, volunteers act as the face of Claire House and are often the first point of contact for supporters.
From sorting donations to serving customers and creating beautiful window displays, there’s plenty of fun things to do.

All you have to be is a kind, considerate, trustworthy and reliable person looking to help make a difference. Our retail volunteers also have to be aged 16+ (due to insurance restrictions).

What skills do I need?

It’s perfect if you enjoy meeting new people or would like to build your confidence or CV. We even offer volunteers the opportunity to gain a free NVQ (including in Retail, Customer Service and/or Team Leading), so there’s plenty of ways to gain new skills and develop experience.
