Retail Sort Room & Donation Support Volunteer

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

About us
Our Ramsbottom shop is looking for volunteers to join the team. We’re a quirky shop on the main shopping street right in the centre of Ramsbottom, selling quality clothing at affordable prices and all sorts of unique items from vintage china to hand-crafted cards. Surrounded by quaint stone independent shops, our shop on Bridge Street has been open for over 20 years and was originally a boot and shoemaker dating back to 1871 - it still retains the old world charm.

About you
Support our shops behind the scenes, back of house, sorting donations, getting things ready for sale and making sure the shop is kept stocked and ready for our customers.

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.
