We love to welcome new volunteers to join our team! Our store environment is friendly and warm and our volunteers come from a diverse background, creating a wonderful experience where we all work together as a team and support each other as well as our customers. We encourage our volunteers to have fun which creates a fabulous atmosphere to work and shop in!


There is so much for you to get stuck into when you are volunteering in our shops. From sorting donations in the back room, hanging & steaming clothing and pricing donations ready for the shop floor. We all share the housekeeping duties to keep the store tidy & organised so that our displays are easy to browse.

You will also be welcoming customers into the store and showcasing your customer service skills and we will show you how to use the cash register and eftpos machine, if you don't know how.
