CLOSING DATE: Ongoing LOCATION: Emmaus Hertfordshire - Harpenden 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 stock lifter and mover / handyman in our Harpenden store 44-46, Coldharbour Lane, Harpenden, AL5 4UN.

To assist the van crew in loading and unloading the van of collection and deliveries. To assist shop staff in rotating stock in the shop and warehouse and in setting up displays for merchandising.

Heavy lifting involved; PPE and training provided.

Minimum days/hours required

1 morning/afternoon per week


5 days per week

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:
