Our warehouse assistants need to be fit and able to move or carry heavy items of furniture with the aid of a sack truck or work alongside another volunteer. Occasionally a customer may need help or advice too, so assisting them would also be part of the opportunity.
Our warehouse staff help to load the vans with deliveries which are going out and unload collections brought in.
Keeping busy and using muscle power is often very satisfying, sometimes just as much mentally as it is physically!
Previous experience of manual handling and dealing with the public is useful.
Reading and writing skills essential in order to complete simple paperwork.
Any experience of working with people under support may prove valuable too.
We appreciate volunteers who are self-motivated, who can look around, notice what needs doing and get it done!
Every small task accomplished will help to keep our charity running smoothly and efficiently.
