Op Shop Assistant


Want to make a real difference in your community?
Our Op Shop team does fantastic work in the community selling affordable pre-loved goods, and this helps to fund our essential, lifesaving services and community initiatives.
We have created a friendly, supportive community hub, offering much-needed local services and we even help New Zealand to be more environmentally sustainable - more recycling means less landfill!
Maybe you already have retail or customer service experience or perhaps you're looking for an opportunity to learn these skills - either way, we'd love to hear from you.

What's involved?
There's plenty of variety in this role. You could be doing anything from serving customers and cash handling to sorting donated goods, visual merchandising or tidying the store.

We welcome and encourage diversity in our workforce and adhere to best practice equal employment opportunity principles in all aspects of our recruitment and our ways of working.

By participating in this volunteering opportunity you are helping achieve the following United Nations Sustainability Goals ;

Retail experience is great but not essential. If you're keen to learn, enthusiastic and reliable, then we can teach you the skills you need.
If you are at least 18 years old and want to give back to your community, we'd love to hear from you. The recruitment process will involve an interview with the store manager, a reference check and a criminal record check.
