Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland are looking for individuals for a number of opportunities in their retail store in Biggar.
Customer Care Volunteer
Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland are looking for individuals with a keen interest in customer service and can welcome and assist customers with their shopping experience. You will be on the shop floor, providing customer services to shoppers as they browse, and will be involved in the stock control and make sure the rails and shelves are tidy.
Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland are looking for individuals who can help organise new stock for the shop floor. You will be involved in sorting stock, hanging stock, ticketing and pricing stock and will help keep the stockroom clean and tidy.
Display and Merchandising Volunteer
Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland are looking for individuals who have an interest in fashion and can utilise their artistic, entrepreneurial and fashion flair. As part of their team of volunteers you will help with the window display and interior displays, making them eye catching to customers and planning themes for each display.
Our shop volunteers are helping us beat cancer right now.
In 2019/20, 14,000 volunteers gave 3.1 million hours of their time and sold items totalling £15million. These funds are helping us start new clinical trials and research treatments as we speak.
If you volunteer at a Cancer Research UK shop, you too could make a real difference to what we can achieve. Nothing we do would be possible without amazing volunteers like you.
You’ll also gain valuable skills to help develop your CV and experience. And you’ll volunteer alongside a wonderful team of passionate, friendly people who will support you every step of the way.
Volunteering is open to everyone and no experience is required. So, if you’re looking for a new challenge, we’d love to hear from you.
