Shop Volunteer: Shelter Boutique at Coal Drops Yard

Job Description

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And, we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. Shelter volunteers are crucial to what we do. We simply couldn't achieve our goals without them. We’re looking for a team of passionate volunteers to help set up and run our new and exciting flagship boutique at Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross. The Coal Drops Yard store is unlike any other charity shop, with a unique shop interior created by HemingwayDesign. Offering great quality, on-trend pieces at remarkable prices in a beautiful shopping environment, Boutique by Shelter is at the forefront of the charity retailer revolution.

This new shop will raise vital funds for Shelter’s work through selling unique vintage and designer treasures but will also be community focused - putting out Shelter’s message locally and building key relationships in the area. We have lots of exciting things in the pipeline from workshops, catwalks, events and talks to being part of the innovative new community of the Coal Drop’s Yard. But, we can’t pull all this off without you! Through this fantastic opportunity you’ll be bringing your time, your energy and your skills to support Shelter in our fight against bad housing and homelessness.

We have flexible hours to suit you, and a wide range of things to get involved in, including:

  • Visual merchandising and creating eye-catching displays
  • Sorting through fabulous stock donations
  • Customer service
  • Keeping the shop spick and span
  • Social media promotion
  • Events
  • Shelter campaigns

You’ll gain valuable work experience, be part of a great team, build your confidence and develop transferable skills. It will also enhance your CV, we will provide references when you leave. We will work with you to get the most out of your time with us.
