Retail Department Volunteer

This opportunity takes place from 03 Mar 2020.

While there are opportunities across a range of roles in our shops, you may prefer to volunteer in one of our departments. We’re looking for people who would enjoy giving great customer service and keeping their department looking great. You may have an interest in homewares, books or accessories. Whichever you choose, you’ll get the chance to mingle with the local customers and volunteers, and integrate yourself into the BHF community. Becoming a department volunteer means you’ll be chatting to the local customers helping them find the right product to suit their needs and making sure that all the stock has been prepared and is displayed to our guidelines. If you think you’re ready to take up a role like this then get in touch and we'll arrange an appointment for you to pop into your local store and meet our friendly team.
