Volunteers will need their own transport to get to and from our warehouse in Grenada North as we are not on a public transport route.
Team members must be able to commit to weekly shifts, for a minimum of 3 months.
We are looking for reliable all-rounders who can work as part of a team, either sorting and storing non-food donations, or on the food side of our operations.
This role involves sorting and boxing up, or storing, all incoming donations. These can be anything from clothing and food, to furniture and whiteware. Once you have mastered where all the stock is in our warehouse, you will be able to assist with making up the various orders from our 77 partner agencies we distribute to.
Each warehouse team is also responsible for putting out the rubbish, taking away the reject clothing for the rag man, wiping down the sorting tables and vacuuming their work areas. This helps out the next volunteer shift and is done by a roster system so each team member only does this about once a month.
The warehouse team photographs all donations coming in and going out, and posts them to our Facebook page. Our various partner agencies call and text us, so a great phone manner is required and you must be able to use a smart phone.
This role can involve some heavy lifting (between 2 people) so you must be reasonably fit.
