Do you have retail experience with excellent customer service skills? Would you love to use your retail knowledge for an important cause? If so come and assist and support our Shop Manager to run our Woodstock shop and contribute to the work we do across Sue Ryder.

Our Sue Ryder shop is situated in the heart of Woodstock, nestled amongst independent shops and boutiques - an enviable position for shoppers looking to browse through our excellent high quality items. We sell a range of ladies', men's and children's clothing and accessories, alongside a range of household goods, pictures, books, CDs and DVDs.

Our shop has recently been refurbished and is warm and bright. All shoppers can expect a warm and friendly welcome from our volunteers and staff.

Donors can park for free outside, making dropping off very easy.

As our new Shop Assistant you will help us to create a well-presented shop where customers get great service. You will sort and size stock, and be on hand to help customers with their purchases. Remember that you could often be moving stock - which may involve lifting heavy goods or furniture.

• To help maximise New Goods income by assisting with the managing of stock levels and effective merchandising. Assist with quarterly stock takes
• To assist the Shop Manager to recruit, train and retain a team of shop volunteers

To do this, you should have experience working within a customer focused environment and working as part of a team. You should also have good basic arithmetic and a gift for dealing with people. With these talents, you'll deliver retail excellence to grow income and make a difference to Sue Ryder Healthcare and the people we support.
