Why we need you

CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. We do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well. And if the worst happens, we will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain.


Our shops are looking for new volunteers to join the team so that we can raise even more for the children and young people who we support! If you want to be part of an energetic team fighting for young lives against cancer then this is the opportunity for you. Whether you have years of experience, are new to volunteering or just want to meet like-minded people, we would love to hear from you.


What you’ll be doing

You’ll have the opportunity to be involved in a range of tasks depending on the need of the shop. Tasks may include:


  • Being a welcoming face to the general public and representing CLIC Sargent
  • Working in the stock room sorting and preparing stock for the shop floor
  • Steaming and merchandising stock
  • Keeping the ship clean and tidy
  • Providing customers with excellent customer service
  • Operating a simple till (you’ll be fully trained in this)
  • Working with the shop team to ensure the shop is a happy and atmospheric place to be for volunteers, staff and customers.


What skills or experience you’ll need

  • Good customer service skills or experience of being a customer yourself
  • A good sense of humor and friendly manner so that you can interact positively with volunteers, staff and customers
  • You’ll enjoy working with people from different backgrounds
  • A passion for CLIC Sargent and the fight for young lives against cancer.


What we’ll give you

  • You’ll gain fundamental retail skills and experience
  • NVQ's available for eligible candidates
  • Full support from a CLIC Sargent member of staff and face to face support from the shop manager
