Shelter – Volunteer Leaders

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness – and we campaign to prevent it in the first place. We’re here so no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. The Shelter Charity Shop raises vital funds towards Shelters work offering confidential advice and support to anyone affected by homelessness/housing issues.

We currently have important and exciting opportunities for volunteer leaders. The role will provide support to the shop manager and provide volunteer leadership.

The role will include aspects such as opening the shop, till procedures including refunds and voids, sorting donations, preparing items for sale, stock replenishment, displays, some computer work, gift aid process and cashing up.

No experience is needed as we provide full training and good support to all volunteers. This is ongoing until you are confident in the role and you will also receive further training on any new procedures which arise.

It is an enjoyable place to volunteer where you make a real difference. It also looks very impressive on a cv, is an excellent opportunity to gain positive and valuable experience in retail while supporting the vital work of Shelter. All help is greatly appreciated.

For more details about this or other volunteer opportunities with us please contact: Wendy McEwan, Shop Manager on abergeorgeshop@shelter.org.uk  / tel.: 01224 639818 or pop in past the shop on 179 George Street, Aberdeen, AB25 1HX. Looking forward to meeting you.
