Volunteer in a Save the Children Op Shop

14 October 2020, Retail

Make friends and have fun while you do something positive to help vulnerable children

Why volunteer with us?  

If you are looking for an opportunity to be part of a friendly team and have fun while you do something good for vulnerable kids, volunteering at a Save the Children Op Shop might be just the thing for you. Here are just some of the reasons our volunteers offer when we ask them why they volunteer with us.   

It’s fun

Whether it’s dressing a shop window, chatting with our customers while you tell them about the fabulous items we sell, ringing up purchases (don’t worry we’ll show you how), ensuring the shop is clean and tidy, (merchandising our stores) or sorting stock in the backroom, there’s many fun ways to make a contribution. 

You’ll be part of a great team

Our volunteers come from all walks of life; they’re young and old, friendly and dedicated, and waiting to welcome you as part of our brilliant team.  

It’s flexible

Volunteering in our store is easy and flexible. Ideally, you’ll be available to volunteer 1 - 3 days per week, either for a full day or half-day shift. And all activities are Centrelink approved. 

You’ll be making a difference

The work that you do will be helping change the lives of children. All profits from our store support vulnerable kids here in Australia and overseas through programs that keep them healthy, in school and protected from abuse. 

Volunteering in Save Op Shops gives me the opportunity to meet people from all different walks of life while supporting a good cause, and it’s a great opportunity to learn new skills.

Who are we looking for? 

If you’re punctual, reliable and honest, all you need is a willingness to learn. This is a great opportunity if you’re recently retired or a younger person seeking retail work experience. We’ll show you what to do and provide all the training you’ll need. Before you know it, you’ll be part of the team, having fun while doing something you can be proud of.
