Shop Volunteer - Palmers Green

What needs to get done

This shop has shifts available every day of the week.

In 2019/20, 14,000 volunteers gave 3.1 million hours of their time and sold items totaling £15million. These funds are helping us start new clinical trials and research treatments as we speak.

If you volunteer at a Cancer Research UK shop, you too could make a real difference to what we can achieve.

Volunteering is open to everyone and no experience is required.

How your contribution will help

While this list is not exhaustive, it gives you a flavour of some of the typical tasks in our charity shops:

Serving customers, taking payments, and providing good all-round customer service

Sorting through donated items and pricing stock

Working on window and shop displays

Keeping the shop tidy, clean and well organised

Interacting with the general public

Following new health, safety, and social distancing measures

There’ll be a full induction as well as ongoing training opportunities.

What you will get out of it

You’ll gain important skills that are hugely valued in the workplace such as teamwork, communication, and using initiative.

Boost your CV by working towards an NVQ in Retail with Derby College, and we'll provide you with a reference.

It will allow you to get involved in your local community and to meet new friends.

Our friendly CRUK team will be there to support you all the way.

The minimum age for volunteering is 18. If you’re aged between 16 -18 you may still be able to volunteer.
