charity shop volunteering

Volunteer Shop Assistants

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has charity shops in both Morningside and Stockbridge, which provide a vital income stream for the care of the Home's rescued dogs and cats.

We are seeking Volunteer Shop Assistants to join our dedicated team of volunteers and staff, who together ensure that our shops are manned 7 days a week. Volunteer tasks include:

  • Sorting donations and prepare goods for the sales floor
  • Pricing and research incoming items
  • Replenishing stock as required
  • Serving customers
  • Ensuring a friendly and welcoming customer shopping experience

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain retail experience, and do something to help Edinburgh and the Lothians' unwanted dogs and cats. We welcome volunteers of all levels of experience, and only seek a small time commitment every week to ensure that our shops are covered.
