Retail Volunteer - Braintree

← Back to search results

No two days are ever the same in a Sue Ryder shop - we sell everything from pre-loved jumpers to vintage vinyl and household electrical to armchairs.

As well as sorting, pricing and merchandising the huge variety of donated goods that come in every day, there’s a whole range of other jobs to be done. You could find yourself running a local raffle, encouraging people to donate items or supporting other people to volunteer with us.

Our shops really engage with the local community, and it is this link that makes our shops so successful in raising income for our vital healthcare work. It's part of what makes working for Sue Ryder so rewarding.


A number of volunteering roles are available, ranging from General Shop Volunteer to Stockroom Assistant, eBay Expert to Facebook Fanatic, Department Volunteer to Lead Volunteer. At Sue Ryder, we believe developing our people is important and short courses and NVQ 2's in Retail, Customer Service, Team Leading and Warehousing are available.


Volunteering for Sue Ryder is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and gain friends, and get involved in your local community. Everyone’s contribution is valued. You’ll help us to be there when it matters for people in need of palliative, neurological or bereavement support.
