Summary

We need your help in researching and valuing donations to be sold in our charity shops. With your help, we can turn these donations into cash.

Detailed description

Why am I needed?

Community is at the heart of everything that we do at Tenovus Cancer Care to help those affected by cancer. Our aim is simple – to deliver a vision where fewer people get cancer and those that do receive equal access to excellent treatment. However, we can’t do this without your help. Our shops in local communities are crucial to us raising vital funds. So, we’d like you to volunteer your time and commitment to help us make a difference. We need you to help value our interesting donations in our shops to help turn them into cash.

 

What will I be doing?

  • Researching interesting items online on sites such as eBay, Amazon and Abe Books to value them for sale in the shop
  •  Enlisting help from local auction houses when needed
  • Working together with the shop team to identify and price high value items
  • Speaking with customers, making them welcome and answering queries
  • Promoting awareness of the charity and the services that we provide. 


How much time do I need to commit?

We’d need you to give around three hours per week if you can with the possibility to do more if you’d like to. However, we appreciate any time you’d like to give; please let us know this on your application form. All we ask is that you give the same hours each week and that you let us know as soon as you can if you’re not able to make it. This’ll help us to plan our week. 


What benefits can I expect?

  • Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed in line with organisational policy
  • The satisfaction of knowing you’re making a vital difference to the work of Tenovus Cancer Care, and in particular the people who access our unique services
  • The opportunity to be creative and bring new ideas to the shop whilst developing your visual merchandising and retail skills
  • The opportunity to develop new and existing skills
  • Access to all internal vacancies
  • Access to training
  • The enjoyment of meeting new people and being part of our Retail Team
  • The chance to gain experience of helping Wales’ leading cancer charity.


Where will I be based?

You’ll be based within the Tewkesbury Tenovus Cancer Care shop.


Inclusivity

Whether you’re a volunteer, supporter, or staff member, we want everyone to feel welcome at Tenovus Cancer Care. We are committed to greater diversity across our people to make sure we have a breadth of experience, skills and perspective that reflects the communities we serve.


We are working to ensure that Tenovus Cancer Care is a fair and equitable place to volunteer. We strive to ensure everyone is treated fairly, regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion, or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership.
