]Admin and Office Work, Charity Shops and Retail

Unlike standard retail outlets, our stores offer a fantastic opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of the retail operation. Our Volunteer Retail Assistants are trained to undertake a wide range of activities including: * Providing strong customer service. * Serving customers at the till. * Taking receipt of stock donations from the public, thanking them for their generosity and finding out if they are Gift Aid Donors. * Signing up new Gift Aid Donors (this raises an extra 25p per pound for Barnardo's from the sale of donations and does not cost donors anything). * Replenishing stock by making sure our rails and shelves are well-stocked, visually appealing and tidy. * Merchandising throughout the store. * Stock preparation including sorting, steaming and pricing. * Possible administrative tasks such as stocktaking. * If you have a particular skill or interest, our team would be delighted to discuss how you could utilise it in store! This could range from computer skills
