Details of Role: 

Are you someone who would like to stay in shape, help save the planet and raise funds to save lives? Volunteering in our NEW local furniture store warehouse opening on Brislington Retail Park could be the answer! 

We need Warehouse Volunteers to keep our stock moving from the van to the warehouse and sales floor, and back to the van for delivery when items are sold. This role can be physical but it’s not just moving furniture around. There are other opportunities to help in our warehouse, such as warehouse logistics, booking stock in, building our flat-packed furniture, and testing electrical items – you can try different roles. You will help protect the environment through recycling while helping us create a world free from the fear of heart disease.

Typical tasks include:

o Safely lifting and carrying a range of furniture items by hand

o Ensuring the warehouse is always kept clean, safe and organised

o Dealing with van deliveries to the shop and preparing deliveries for customers

o Building flat-pack furniture for display purposes and carrying out light furniture repairs if confident alongside the Warehouse Supervisor

o Re-stocking furniture on the shop floor as items are sold

Volunteering with the British Heart Foundation comes with plenty of benefits too…

· A 25% discount on donated goods and 10% discount on New Goods in our shops

· Unlimited, free, and confidential support by Retail Trust

· Access to training and development

· Reasonable travel expenses reimbursed and free parking on site at Brislington retail park

· Refreshments available

· Volunteer certificates, references and long service awards provided

· Access to discounts with other retailers

Just so you know, we are unable to accept volunteers aged under 16 or with unspent criminal convictions.

Please note this is an unpaid voluntary position in a friendly charity shop.
