Volunteer to help Sue Ryder to be there when it matters.

About us
Our Westhoughton shop is looking for volunteers to join the team. Our Westhoughton Sue Ryder is in a small friendly community, and we like to bring fun, hard work and great customer service with a sense of humour. Our store stocks good quality clothing, bric-a-brac, home accessories, books, music and electrical goods. Thanks to the generous donations we receive, we have a regular supply of new stock in store - all of which is reasonably priced. We have built up a friendly volunteer team who are all trained to high standards, and our shop has a strong community feel.

About you
If your passion is fashion and you are creative with a flair for design displays & visual merchandising, then come and help our customers discover the best fashion in our Westhoughton Sue Ryder shop. As a volunteer, you'll put your creative eye for fashion to good use by producing an interesting and inviting atmosphere to entice customers into the shop and help display items at their best potential. You will also be able to meet & greet customers and become a part of our shop floor team learning the till and so much more.

How you’ll benefit
• Join a friendly team & make new friends
• Gain confidence & customer service skills
• Get valuable retail experience & enhance your CV
• Receive discounted donated goods and travel expenses
• Give back to your community
• Support people through the most difficult times of their lives

You will also be helping us to inspire communities to provide more care for more people through innovating and collaborating on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Full training will be provided, and travel at a reasonable local rate can be reimbursed for shifts of four hours or more, as agreed with the local manager.

How much time does the role take up?
Volunteering is flexible and can be a regular morning or afternoon. You can opt for weekdays, weekends, or as and when you are available.

Why not arrange a taster session?
You can register your interest in volunteering online or directly in store. You can have a no-obligation taster session in your chosen shop.
