Retail volunteering roles

If you are interested in volunteering with us in one of our charity shops, please email us with your preferred shop you would like to volunteer at and your details to volunteer@stoswaldsuk.org.


Shop Volunteer

Our fabulous shops are always looking to boost their volunteer power! You’ll be part of day to day shop life – customer service, processing donations and ensuring your retail space is inviting, organised and safe for everyone to enjoy.

Whether you see yourself creatively dressing windows, sorting and preparing stock, or front and centre behind the till, retail volunteering is a fantastic way to meet new people, gain experience and skills for your CV and of course to generate income for our wonderful Hospice.

if you would like to apply or find out more information about the role, please email us below and state your preferred shop you would like to volunteer at (Find your local St Oswald's shop here).


Van Driver Assistant Volunteer

As our shops reopen and donations are flooding in, we’re on the lookout for Van Assistant volunteers to support our brilliant Drivers. You’ll be involved in house clearances, moving and handling of large household items and making collections and deliveries from our shops around the region.

Based either at Kingston Park or our Benfield site, this role would suit someone looking to enhance their logistics or retail CV by getting stuck into a physically demanding volunteer role in a friendly team. You’ll be based at either our Kingston Park or Benfield site and days optional Monday – Friday, 8am – 4pm.

if you would like to apply or find out more information about the role, please email us below.
