No retail experience is necessary as full training will be given, although previous knowledge of merchandising, customer service, cash handling, up-selling, fashion or seasonal trends would be useful. More important are honesty, reliability and commitment. It is vital that you work well as part of a team. You must be over 14 years.

Tŷ Hafan's shop is situated at 139 Commercial Street, Maesteg, CF34 9DF. They are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help support the shop manager in the day to day running of their Maesteg shop.

As a retail volunteer you could:

  • give great customer service with bags of enthusiasm  for Tŷ Hafan;
  • sort and prepare stock for the shop floor;
  • keep the shelves and displays fresh and in fashion by merchandising in accordance with seasonal styles;
  • use product knowledge to identify the good sellers and price items accordingly.

The possibilities are endless!

Every year Tŷ Hafan take care of over 200 children with life-limiting conditions whilst supporting their families. This is a collective effort - Tŷ Hafan simply couldn't provide its vital services without the kindness and generosity of their volunteers.  

Volunteering in one of their shops is a great way to support Tŷ Hafan at the same time as making new friends or gaining some on the job experience. You will have the opportunity to develop your skills in a number of areas essential to the running of a successful charity shop.
