A bit about this role
Our Cats Protection shops play an important part in raising the funds needed to help the thousands of cats and kittens in our care. Our retail ‘love to tidy’ volunteers play a key role in making sure our shops are organised, tidy and most importantly welcoming to members of the public. Whether you have a passion for cats, neatness or both – this could be the volunteer role for you!
What can you expect to be doing?
- Helping keep stock rooms organised, clean and tidy
- Keeping sales areas neat, ordered and accessible
- Creating eye-catching displays
- Making sure Cats Protection information on display is relevant and up to date
A bit more information about this role and the team
We are looking for a number of volunteers to help our friendly retail team at our Teignmouth Charity shop. If you like meeting people and have some time to spare, we sre looking for people to help sort and prepare donations for sale at the back of the shop and/or assist customers and stock the shelves and displays at the front of the shop.
Our Teignmouth shop is bright and airy and receives great reviews from customers. If you would like to apply or require further information, please contact Barbara.
What are the benefits to you and the cats?
You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by helping create a positive, organised environment within our shops which will help raise funds for our feline friends in need. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated team of volunteers.
We’re looking for someone with
- Good organisational skills
- An eye for detail and neatness
- Willingness to be part of a team
Our ‘love to tidy’ volunteers usually spend 1 to 2 hours per week in this role, which is flexible and can be shared by more than one volunteer if needed.
At Cats Protection we believe our volunteers should be happy and confident in their roles. To make sure this is the case, we provide support and guidance both remotely from our National Cat Centre and face to face through our regional and local volunteer groups and teams. We also offer varied online and face to face training and have wide-ranging policies covering all aspects of volunteering. We hope the support we provide will ensure our volunteers have a great experience with Cats Protection.
