About your role

You will help raise vital charity income in our Charity shop to fund our work to achieve everyday equality for disabled people. As a Volunteer for Scope you can take pride in knowing you’ve made a difference to disabled people and their families at a time of need.

You’ll be mainly volunteering on the till, welcoming and serving customers, answering their questions and handling money. You may also be asked to help with the following tasks:

  • sorting donations and preparing stock
  • visual merchandising, creating window and shop floor displays

This is a very flexible role. We’d love your help for as little as 1 hour a week, but if you can give 5 hours, even better. We’re open 7 days a week, so chat to us about the hours and days that suit you.

Skills needed

There are no skills or experience necessary before you start volunteering in our shops. We welcome any volunteers who are interested in charity shops, passionate about disability equality, or just keen to meet people or learn something new.

  • Shop experience
  • Customer service skills
  • Working the till
  • Getting stock ready to be sold
  • Creating displays
  • Team work
  • Confidence
  • Valuable experience for your CV
  • Experience in a large national disability charity
  • You may be eligible to study for an NVQ in Retail, Customer Service or Team leading (if you volunteer for more than 16 hours a week and meet the eligibility criteria)

The support you will get

  • Volunteer induction into Scope
  • Relevant training
  • One to one support and regular catch ups with your manager
  • Pre-agreed travel expenses and, if you volunteer all day, lunch expenses too
  • We will make accessibility adjustments to the role (if you need this)
