Shop Volunteers

Could you be our next volunteer at Wear&Care?

We want working at Wear&Care to be fun, varied and rewarding, so if you have retail experience or are keen to learn something new, we’d love to hear from you.

We have a range of roles available, including:

  • Working on the till - perfect for anyone who loves to give great customer service
  • Helping to sort and price donated goods - ideal for those with an interest in fashion or books or homewares
  • Visual merchandising – for those with creative flair
  • Administrative support - we could have just the role for you if you like to make sure things are kept well organised
  • Steaming clothes and helping to keep the shop clean and tidy – straightforward tasks, but absolutely essential!
  • The minimum commitment we look for is just four hours a week, so if you have a little spare time (or a lot!) this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

The process of volunteering at Wear&Care starts with an informal chat with the Shop Manager, so why not get in touch today - the kettle’s on and we look forward to meeting you!

Are you a student studying for your 'A' Levels!
