Donations Centre Volunteer

We have been able to create a number of exciting new volunteer roles to support the opening of our new Donation Centre, which will be the hub for donations and processing donated stock. Based in S4, we offer training and support to our volunteers, helping them to gain experience and references for job interviews. (Age 18+)

Retail Opportunities - in particular the shops in Broomhill (our vintage shop), Ecclesall Road, and Crystal Peaks.

Volunteering in our shops is a great way to gain work experience, make friends and contribute the community. Our retail volunteers provide us with vital support across our 14 charity shops in Sheffield, ensuring our shops are welcoming, tidy, and always freshly stocked with our fabulous donations.

There's plenty to do both on the shop floor and behind the scenes, so we've developed different roles to suit all kinds of personalities. Take a look at the opportunities on offer to find one to suit your interests!
