Malaga warehouse assistants

Our Save the Children store in Malaga is currently in need of volunteers to work as warehouse assistants.

Position Summary

We need your knowledge and experience in assisting the Warehouse to sort through donations. If you enjoy rummaging, finding hidden treasures and organsising, this could be the position for you. We sort the stock, categorise and disperse to aisles, collect and package up orders to go out to the 17 shop locations and presenting stock for shop display. There are always plenty of different roles to enjoy and sections to work within ie: clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, books.  This is a busy, fun and intriguing role where you are able to get involved with all the behind the scenes processes involved in running the Save the Children Op Shops. We have a wonderful team of like minded people, all working together to support the work of improving the lives of children in WA and around Australia.

We are Centrelink registered.

  • bility and willingness to work in a team environment is a must
  • Interest in stock control

It’s a real team effort with great rewards and opportunity to contribute your own ideas to increase our sales and maximise the benefit for children in need. You’ll also get to know your fellow team members, regular customers and have a great time with everyone.  

Full day and half day shifts are available, we just ask for regular shift commitments of agreed upon shifts. For those looking for roles with more responsibility, there are opportunities to progress towards Supervisory Roles and Managerial Roles.
