Volunteers

From retirees looking to give something back to the community to young people hoping to gain valuable work experience, our volunteers have a variety of backgrounds. We are proud to offer a host of roles to people who want to help others build a better life.

With the exception of our retired volunteers, many of the people at Furnistore are seeking full time employment. Since our inception in 1995 we have helped our volunteers to sharpen old skills or learn new ones, gaining confidence and experience in order to move on to full time employment, professional training or education.

There are jobs to suit all, whether you’re looking for work experience to help you find your way back to employment, you’re a student hoping to strengthen your CV or UCAS application, or you just have plenty of spare time. Your time and talents are required to help out with any of the following:

  • In the warehouse (liaising with clients, computer data entry/analysis, office admin, moving furniture)
  • On the van, either driving or helping with deliveries and collections
  • Photographing our stock for our online stock/ inventory system
  • Maintaining our auction (eBay and Etsy) and social networking (Facebook and Twitter) websites.

If you think you or someone you know could benefit from volunteering with us and would like to contribute to a charitable organisation, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01737 773133.
