Shop Volunteer – Save the Children Morningside

Our Morningside Save the Children Shop has been a much loved part of the local community for years and continues to be hugely popular, thanks to the kindness and generosity of the volunteer led team.

All you need is some enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference. The role is diverse, taking place on the shop floor and behind the scenes. Volunteer activities include customer service, creative merchandising, preparing items for sale and working as part of a team.

About Save the Children

Save the Children is the world's independent children's rights organisation. We're outraged that millions of children are still denied proper healthcare, food, education and protection and we're determined to change that.

Experience Required

No previous experience is required as all training will be provided on an ongoing basis. Activities include customer service, cash handling, creative merchandising, preparing items for sale and working as part of a diverse volunteer team.
