Charity Retail Volunteer - Martin House eBay shop

You are invited to join the our friendly eBay shop team! Many of our 400 volunteers support us in this way. We are looking for somebody to support our existing eBay volunteers with the packaging of sold items to be sent to their winning bidders. The role may also include research on the potential values of donated items. You will be providing invaluable support to our retail provision, generating income for Martin House Hospice Children's Hospice.

If you have a particular interest in collectables, records or books then this role might be of particular interest to you! This role may also be of interest to students and young people doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

We take the safety of our retail volunteers seriously. All our eBay workstations are Covid-safe, with full risk assessments in place. We have gloves, masks and hand sanitiser available
