Retail Opportunities

Volunteering in our shops is great way to gain work experience, make friends and contribute the community. Our retail volunteers provide us with vital support across our 14 charity shops in Sheffield, ensuring our shops are welcoming, tidy, and always freshly stocked with our fabulous donations.

There's plenty to do both on the shop floor and behind the scenes, so we've developed different roles to suit all kinds of personalities. Take a look at the opportunities on offer to find one to suit your interests!

Supporting Patients
