Retail Assistant

The Forest Recycling Project

Walthamstow, London

Volunteer • Part Time • Temporary 0208 539 3856 Sarah-Jane Childs

Sectors: sustainability

Closing date: Wednesday, 21 February 2018

We're looking for someone who enjoys engaging with the public and would like to gain some retail experience, in particular in the environmental charity sector. If you're good at listening to customers and would like to work in a small friendly paint shop, get in touch.

Previous experience of working in a shop, or customer service skills, or knowledge of paint would be desirable, but absolutely not a necessary. A pleasant and welcoming personality is far more important and a degree of independence, as the shop can switch from being super busy to super quiet throughout the day.

Our retail mentor will provide guidance and help, so you will not be left stranded!

This role is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays and is a half day - either morning or afternoon. The shop is open from 10am to 4pm/6pm.

We provide £3 of expenses, to be spent as the volunteer so chooses. No special uniform is required, but a semi-smart appearance would be beneficial.

We can provide references afterwards.
