We work around you! We appreciate you giving up your time to help animals in need and we are very thankful that you have the time to do so. We do ask for a minimum for 3 hours per week, just so it is easier for our team to plan their rotas.
This really depends on you and how you feel. We have creative roles such as, managing the shop displays, serving customers on the till and sorting out donations in the stock room. Each shop is different, so you can discuss this with your role manager once you are on board!
You will learn skills in customer service, visual merchandising, money handling, how to manage a stockroom and good organisational skills. You will also learn about how an Animal Charity is run and you will meet new people! It will look great on your CV and we will provide you with a reference if you request one. You mush volunteer for a minimum of three months if you would like a reference from us though.
We all have to start somewhere! If you do not have any experience, that is not a problem at all as full training will be provided. In fact, it is a great way to gain some experience so you can apply for future jobs! You can discuss any concerns you have with the CVSO or with the Shop Manager. You will have full support with whatever task you wish to learn however there is no pressure for you to learn lots!
