About the opportunity

Shelter is a charity that believes everyone deserves a home, and aims to help people who are struggling with bad housing or homelessness. The Shelter shop network allows Shelter to fundraise for our core activities by selling items donated by Shelter supporters. We are looking for customer service volunteers at our Shelter shop on Gloucester Road in Bristol.

The purpose of a customer service volunteer at a Shelter Shop is to assist the management team in the smooth day to day running of the store.

Roles can include manning the till and ensuring shop floor standards are adhered to, processing stock to make sure the store is fully stocked, visual merchandising to create a wow factor for our customers, aiding with sales of books and media via an online sales platform, and general housekeeping.

What we are looking for?

No qualifications or experience required. If you are friendly and enthusiastic, and you care about the work that Shelter does, then you are the person for us! Come and help us to create a fun and friendly environment for all of our customers and volunteers to enjoy!
