Why Volunteer with Oxfam?

Become an Oxfam Shop volunteer and - as well as fighting poverty - you'll learn new skills, build your CV, and join a friendly team of people at the heart of your community.


What does an Oxfam charity shop volunteer do?

There are all sorts of things you could get involved with in our shops. From, window dressing, working behind the till, sorting donations, organising pop up shop events to managing our social media - there are so many options.

What experience do I need?

No experience needed. When you apply the manager will ask you to come in for an initial chat, this is not an interview, just a chance to get an idea of what you'd like to do in the shop. From there you can meet the rest of the volunteer team and get involved with whatever area of the shop takes your interest. Volunteering at Oxfam is the perfect way to gain new skills, whether you're looking to improve your CV, take on a new challenge or just have fun!

Can I volunteer with a friend?

Of course! Just let the manager know when you sign up that you and your friend want to volunteer together and they can make sure you get to work together. However, if you don't have anyone to bring with you, with our diverse and friendly shop teams you're bound to find someone like-minded and find new friends instore.

What age do I have to be to volunteer?

We accept volunteers from the age of 14 but all under 18 year olds must have the consent of a parent or guardian. For more information check with your local shop manager. You can also read more about safeguarding in Oxfam shops.
