This opportunity takes place between 04 Jan 2020 and 02 Jan 2021.
'new to you’ is an initiative that sells affordable reclaimed items, including furniture, crockery, ornaments, toys, sporting equipment, and bric-a-brac. All of the items we sell were originally brought to either of the local household recycling centres. We are a self-funded scheme to support local people and community groups, and aim to help disadvantaged local households who are in need of essential items required to set up a home for day-to-day living.
Joining our team is a great way to gain new skills and experience, meet new people, and contribute to a project that changes lives within your own local community. Saturday is a great day to volunteer as there is always an amazing buzz as people dig for treasures in the warehouse.
We can offer you:
• Practical experience of working in a retail environment, and the opportunity to develop merchandising and customer service skills, alongside waste management knowledge
• A reference if seeking other employment
• Support from a supervisor and other experienced volunteers
We are looking for people who are:
• Able to work independently and as part of a team
• Available to work in the shop on Saturdays
We welcome all volunteers, from young people just starting out in the world of work to those with a lifetime’s wisdom to share.
