Volunteers Required in all sites!
We are always looking for new volunteers to join our friendly team!
The volunteering opportunities we currently have available are:
Van Assistants are vital for the day to day running of our Furniture Now! vans. We have five vans in total, two based in Eastbourne, one based in Hailsham and one based in Lewes, all of which require one driver and one or two assistants. On average we book in 8 – 10 collections/deliveries each day per van depending on the size of the job. The job of the van assistant is to assist the driver with carrying furniture in and out of customers’ homes, lifting and carrying furniture onto the vans, answering the van phone to the stores when the driver is driving and providing excellent customer service to our customers.
Store Assistants are vital for the day to day running of our Furniture Now! stores. We have three stores in total, one in Eastbourne, one in Hailsham and one in Lewes. Due to the size of the Hailsham store we are only looking for volunteers to help us in our larger shops in Eastbourne and Lewes. The job of a store assistant includes: Welcoming customers, answering the phones, supporting staff with sales, pricing items of furniture, creating displays and keeping the store presentable.
We hold a variety of fundraising events and manage stands at local events throughout the year. Some of our previous events and events we have attended include: A fashion show fundraiser, Pub quiz, Shinewater Fun Day, World Mental Health Day and The Big Futures Show. We are always looking for support when it comes to organising events this could be during the lead up or on the day. Some of the help we need could include: Marketing event (creating flyers, tickets, social media posts etc), making sure all event materials are ready, contacting venue/attendees, managing a stand, completing booking forms etc.
If you are interested in any of these Voluntary roles we would love to hear from you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call us on 01323 887199
