Volunteer Sort Room Assistant

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Whether you’re a keen rummager, an organised operator or love the look of a freshly ironed shirt we have a role for you. We need your help to sort the donations we receive into their different categories, steam clothes clear of creases and tag them so they’re ready for the shop floor. Laugh and catch up with other volunteers over the sort room table or over a cup of tea and biscuit at break time. At the end of the day go home feeling satisfied and proud that you have helped to raise vital funds for research into heart and circulatory disease. Whether you’re a lover of vintage clothing, stunning jewellery or beautiful bric-a-brac or just fancy the company of other friendly volunteers, the sort room is the place to be. This role is perfect for enhancing your CV and skills set, plus we also offer our volunteers the choice to do free NVQ qualifications* England shops only subject to eligibility.
