RSPCA

We’re looking for people with friendly and cheerful personalities who enjoy working as a team and interacting with the general public. This is a great opportunity to do something worthwhile to help local animals in need and learn new skills or improve existing ones.  See https://www.rspca.org.uk/local/basingstoke-and-andover-branch for more information regarding our branch and the work we do.

As a charity shop volunteer, you can help us in lots of different ways. You could be serving our customers on the shop floor by helping them find their perfect purchase and processing sales through the till and card machine. You may also help in the stock room by sorting through donated items and preparing them for sale. Alternatively, you could help to showcase stock on the shop floor and creating fantastic window displays.

We’re always busy and being prepared to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in is essential but so is having fun at the same time.  Every day is different as is every bag or box of donations, meaning it’s never dull or boring!

If this sounds like the role for you then contact us now!

If you volunteer on the shop floor you’ll be handling cash and processing sales (including signing people up for GiftAid) so good numeracy skills are essential.

Whilst previous retail experience would be advantageous it is not required, all training will be provided. All we ask is that you are willing, friendly and polite!

Ideally, we’d like you to commit to at least one morning or afternoon per week, Monday to Saturday either 9.30am to 1pm or 1pm to 4.30pm. A long-term commitment of a minimum of 6 months is preferred due to the training requirements.

Location: Basingstoke & Andover RSPCA shop, 6 London St, Basingstoke RG21 7NU
