Shop Volunteer for Christmas (Gloucester Road)


Based in a beautiful part of London, just 2 minutes walk from Hyde Park, and close to the V&A and the Natural History Museum, the Gloucester Road Oxfam shop is one of the busiest shops in London. Our aim is to fight poverty all around the world by raising as much money as possible by selling the items, which are donated to us.

Oxfam volunteers will help Oxfam to provide good customer service and sort/price donations during one of the busiest times of the year. Ideally, you be able to volunteer 3 days per week for a minimum of 2 weeks (any time from the 4th of December until the 6th of January excluding Christmas and Boxing Day).

Key responsibilities:

  • Sorting donations given to us to determine which items will sell well.
  • Pricing the items.
  • Researching rare and/or expensive items in order to price them accurately.
  • Providing polite and friendly service to the customers to increase their satisfaction and make them come back to Oxfam.
  • Cash handling.

Skills and competencies:

No previous experience is needed, so don't be afraid to apply. If you are successful, full training will be given. So if you are keen on or would like to learn more about fashion, then this opportunity is for you.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • You will be helping Oxfam in its mission to build a just world without poverty.
  • Train and operate as an Oxfam volunteer.
  • Gain experience of working as part of an international team.
  • Learn new skills.
  • References are available on request.
  • Lunch costs and reasonable travel expenses can be reimbursed in line with Oxfam policies.
