SVDP Paddington Shop Volunteers

The role involves sorting, pricing, customer service and general store upkeep. You can help any day between Mon-Sun. To be successful, you need to have good interpersonal skills, love for retail and customer service, as well as a desire to help others. This is a high energy role and involves standing for long hours, light lifting and moving of donations as well as serving diverse customers.
