CLOSING DATE: Ongoing LOCATION: Emmaus Hertfordshire - Boxmoor store TYPE: Volunteer

Emmaus Hertfordshire not only provides formerly homeless people with a stable home and meaningful work in our community and shops, we also sell excellent quality, donated furniture and other household items.

To achieve this, Emmaus relies upon a network of volunteers to help us, and the companions (our residents) keep everything running smoothly.  We are a multi-site organisation, that has a variety of different volunteering roles to suit all.

We are currently looking for a media and bric-a-brac sorter in our Boxmoor Restore and Reuse store at 559 London Road, Hemel Hempstead, HP1 2RE.

The role involves sorting book, DVD, and CD donations into alphabetical order and genre categories in our busy store as well as sorting through bric-a-brac donations and cleaning and displaying suitable items. Scanning of books for Ziffitt will be required with full training given.

Minimum days/hours required

1-2 hours per week

Maximum days/hours

5 days per week

No heavy lifting necessary.

Full training is provided for all volunteer roles, and no role requires lone working.  Working as part of a multi-skilled team, we feel, makes our volunteering roles more enjoyable and fulfilling to our volunteers.  Our Emmaus volunteers work alongside formerly homeless individuals, who are working hard to get their lives back on track and achieve their goals, and therefore we do require all volunteers to complete DBS checks.  Volunteers do receive 20% discount in our stores and are invited to events and activities provided by the charity.

How to apply: 

If you would like to apply for, or find out any further information on this role, please contact our Area Retail Manager Karina Griffiths on 01727 817 294 or 07785 615155.
