CLOSING DATE: Ongoing LOCATION: Emmaus Colchester TYPE: Volunteer
We have some great opportunities for you to work alongside our companions, to share your knowledge and skills and have lots fun at the same time.

All we ask is that you can commit to a minimum of one day a month so that you don’t forget any training that we give you.

Student placements
Have you recently acquired some great skills you’d like to put into practice, or do you have a project in mind you’d like to involve Emmaus Colchester in?
Please contact to discuss opportunities for short or long-term projects you can fit around your studies.

Transport office
Do you you have knowledge of the local area? Would you enjoy working as part of a team to co-ordinate our collections and deliveries? We’re looking for someone who can help us in the transport office, planning economical routes for deliveries and collections, processing relevant paperwork and sales dockets, answering the phone and generally keeping things well organised.

PAT tester
Are you a bit of a techy? Fancy sorting through the weird and wonderful electrical items we receive as donations? We’re looking for someone who can sort, collate and PAT test our electrical goods.

Upcycling donated furniture
Are you handy with a paint brush and want to explore your creative side? Come and join our team of ‘upcyclers’ and learn how to turn unwanted furniture into fantastic shabby chic pieces to be proud of.

Retail assistants
Work alongside our companions in the shops, cafe and warehouse, looking after our customers and keeping the shops looking interesting.

Please get in touch for more details if you’d like to become part of our team.
