Once you’ve expressed your interest, we’ll invite you to come to Mapperley Shop for a Cuppa & Chat to find out about you and your suitability to the role. Suitable volunteers will then work through our in-shop training programme lead by our Community Shop Manager or our Online Sales Co-ordinator.

You’ll need to be aged 18 or over to apply and some roles will require a DBS check prior to you starting, to ensure there is nothing on the record which may make you unsuitable. If a check is needed it will be mentioned when you apply.
