Do you want to volunteer at the EcoVillage?
The EcoVillage is all about community: our producers, suppliers, staff, and most of all our customers. That means providing a high level of customer service with a smile. We are proud of our unpaid volunteers who are at the heart of the EcoVillage and who work hard and the many social objectives we achieve together bring them immense satisfaction. We are always on the lookout for people who are passionate about ethical and sustainable products and who are enthusiastic about giving great customer service, enjoy working with people and have four hours to spare each week to donate to a good cause. This is your opportunity to be part of a team that is inspiring, creative, and really makes a difference!
What do we expect?
We like to be clear about our expectations of our volunteers. Our unpaid volunteers are involved in all aspects of shop life, from serving customers and restocking and tidying shelves to working behind the scenes unpacking deliveries, pricing products, and helping in the community garden. We expect honesty, reliability, and the ability to use your own initiative to complete all daily tasks. Although previous experience in retail or customer service is valuable to us, it is not essential.
What can you expect?
The EcoVillage is committed to developing the existing skills of all our volunteers and gives training in relevant aspects of retail. You can expect to have fun whilst gaining experience in great customer service with the support that comes from working in a small and closely knit team.
If you are interested in volunteering, complete the application form, and return it to the EcoVillage in person, by email or by post. We will offer you a taster session where we can discover more about each other, and you can showcase your skills. Your taster session will be followed or preceded by a short interview. If you are successful, we will contact your referee for a character reference and let you know the outcome of your application.
