Christmas Gift Wrapping 2022!

Volunteering Waikato - EPP

Christmas shopping can be a stressful time, but your customer service skills can make a real difference to someone's day! This role involves wrapping Christmas gifts at a booth in one of two shopping centres - Centre Place or The Base, raising funds for Volunteering Waikato. People who have purchased gifts from these centres can come to our booths and get their presents wrapped for a koha. This is a fabulous and unique role that helps put a smile on the faces of us and our communities over the festive season!

You will get to be part of a fun team, meet other volunteers, be part of the Christmas buzz, learn the art of gift wrapping, all while promoting volunteering in our community.
It is preferrable if you can be available for at least two shifts between December 8-24, but this is negotiable and you can do more if you want to!


We provide training for all gift wrappers, but it is really helpful if you are already able to wrap in a neat and tidy way.
You'll be using a mobile EFTPOS machine - don't worry, it's easy and training will be provided.
You to need to work independently, work quickly when things get busy, and have an appropriate level of personal presentation.
You must have a minimum of good conversational English as you need to be able to have casual conversation with anyone who may come to you.
You'll need to be able to stand for four hours.

There is a compulsory training session in the Hamilton CBD for anyone who has not done this project before or anyone who would like a refresher, with a range of times during normal office hours available. Unfortunately we are not able to offer training sessions after hours or at weekends.
