Retail Assistant-Troon

Help make today matter by supporting the hospice as a retail assistant. We are looking to enhance our fantastic team of volunteers at the Troon store. If you are looking for a voluntary role which will be fulfilling, keep you busy and where you will meet friendly and interesting people then we are waiting to meet you.

Experience would be an advantage but not a requirement as you will be trained in all aspects of retail.   

This role will involve:

  • Receiving donations
  • Promoting our Gift Aid scheme
  • Sorting through and pricing donations
  • Operating the EPOS till system
  • Providing excellent customer service
  • You will receive training and support to carry out your role

Troon Shop currently has 3 vacancies for volunteers. Candidates will need to be aware that this is a fast paced retail environment. IT skills are desirable although not essential but applicants need to be willing to undertake training. There is a lot of manual handling/lifting. It is also suitable for anyone interested in gaining retail training to improve their employment prospects.
