WE NEED YOU!
If you’re looking to make use of some spare time, gain new skills and meet new people then you’ve come to the right place!
We are always on the look out for fabulous new volunteers, they play a major part in the running of Furniturelink and without them, without YOU, we wouldn’t be where we are today!
We are currently looking for volunteers within the following areas (if you’re interested in doing something else, that isn’t listed please do still get in touch and we would be happy to discuss other roles with you):
- Drivers Mate
- Furniture Restorer
If you’d like more details about these roles, please scroll down for a brief overview of the role and what it entails.
Drivers Mate – a driver’s mate is essentially our drivers helper. You will be out on the van making local deliveries and collections of furniture. So, you’ll need to be physically fit as some of the furniture is extremely heavy! You’ll also be the face of Furniturelink, so you’ll have to enjoy customer service and meeting new people. You’ll also receive full-training on how to book in items of furniture, how to price them and how to use our handy, portable card machine.
Warehouse Assistant/housekeeper – our warehouse is always busy, and whilst we have a full-time receptionist and full-time warehouse manager there just aren’t enough hours in the day to ensure everything looks tip-top! So, as a warehouse assistant you’ll be greeting customers, re-organising stock and ensuring everything is priced and that all pricing labels can be seen! You’ll also be able to help sort-out bric a brac, price it and pop it out on display. This is always fun, because you really do, never know what you might find!
Furniture Restorer/Upcycler – we hate to throw things away, and we rarely do! However, on occasions when things come in needing a little TLC, we simply just don’t have the time to do these little fixes. So, if you’re a dab hand at DIY, or a great up-cycler, painter and varnisher than we would love your skills to ensure we can keep more, and throw away less!
Receptionist – we have a full-time receptionist, and a warehouse manager both of which work hard on reception. However, when they are busy dealing with other things we need a wonderful receptionist to be on hand, take calls, respond to emails and just greet customers. Full system training will be given.
