By Joshua Robinson –
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is looking for volunteers to photograph and list their high-quality clothing and vintage items at their store on Manchester Road, Huddersfield.
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions and their families across West Yorkshire. By providing nursing care, hydrotherapy, creative therapy, days out, memory making, end-of-life care, bereavement support, and counselling.
Forget Me Not needs to raise over £4 million a year to continue with their work, and with less than 6% of that coming from the government, thus the hospice relies on the local community for help.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rates Forget Me Not as ‘outstanding’, putting them in the top 1% of organisations inspected.
The volunteer role will be based at the Forget Me Not Shop, Manchester Road, Huddersfield, HD1 3JF.
Forget Me Not uses eBay as an extra outlet for goods donated to their charity shops. The volunteer will be using eBay to research the price and availability of items already for sale, photographing items to sell, uploading information about goods for sale onto the eBay site, and then packing and posting sold items.
As a volunteer, high standards of customer service must be maintained. The volunteer will also help to maintain a clean, tidy, and safe working environment.
Open hours are Monday – Friday 9 am to 5 pm, so any hours between these times are greatly appreciated, however ideally a volunteer will work half a day a week.
All volunteers are encouraged to attend training and volunteer meetings whenever possible.
A volunteer will be a representative of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, as such volunteers need to be well-presented, polite and give a positive message about the work of the charity. Expenses are offered in line with the hospice’s expenses policy.
To be eligible for the role, applicants must be 16 years old and above.
The deadline to apply for the role is 12/10/2024.To learn more about the role or to apply for the position, please visit: https://tslkirklees.org.uk/volunteering-roles/entry/ebay-online-volunteer-forget-me-not-childrens-hospice-3972/
