Homewares volunteer (Epsom)

Context:

Epsom Shop is a fast-growing general shop.  This means we sell everything from used clothing to homewares. We have a diverse team of volunteers who seek to give their best in ensuring all goods sold from this shop are of the highest possible standard.

We already have a dedicated and hardworking homewares volunteer but he needs someone who can help him run our busy and successful section.

Ideally you should be able to offer two 4-hour shifts but possibly more if you are keen to expand the role.

Key responsibilities:

  • Identifying and valuing saleable items from donated stock.
  • Pricing items within the shop pricing guidelines and policy
  • Merchandising and displaying stock on the shop floor

Skills and competencies:

  • Enthusiasm, a positive attitude and reliability.
  • Responsible and organised.
  • Ability to work as part of a team.
  • Ability to work using own initiative
  • An interest in all aspects of homewares.
  • Ability to use the internet to research values online.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • The opportunity to contribute to Oxfam's goal of overcoming poverty and suffering.
  • Full training.
  • An enjoyable working environment.
  • The potential thrill of finding rare and valuable objects.
  • Lunch and travel expenses can be paid in line with Oxfam's policy.
