Oxfam Shop Lytham is currently looking for Shop Volunteers to help us to support Oxfam’s fight to support the world’s most vulnerable communities during the current global pandemic.

We’re looking for volunteers who can give 4-8 hours of their time in the shop each week!

We’re excited to welcome brand new volunteers!

Location: 45 Clifton Street, Lytham. FY8 5ER

Opening hours: Monday - Friday (9-4) | Saturday (9-5) | Sunday (10-4)

Become a volunteer!

We have a range of roles and some more specialist roles. We like to give volunteers an opportunity to try a range of areas before they find something that suits them. You might become a Shop Volunteer, Bookshop Volunteer or Music Shop Volunteer. Or, you might find yourself in a more specific role such as a Social Media Volunteer, an Admin/Finance Support Volunteer, or even a Lead Volunteer.

Why be a volunteer?

Your time will make a huge difference; for example, we estimate one four-hour shift will on average provide enough income to enable Oxfam to provide life-saving handwashing facilities for 81 people.

Volunteering can have a positive impact on wellbeing, with an incredible 7 in 10 volunteers saying that their charitable actions were beneficial for their mental health.

What skills do I need?

Benefits of becoming a Volunteer:

• Gain genuine experience working in a retail environment;

• Enhance your CV and skills;

• Great way to meet new people;

• Be part of a fantastic team and make a positive change to the world;

• Opportunity to utilise and develop your transferable skills.

No experience is necessary as full training and an induction will be given. You don't need to be computer literate to join our team; there are volunteer opportunities for all. All we ask is that you’re happy to work as part of a diverse and inclusive team.

We can be very flexible around parenting, caring, health, employment, education and any other commitments you have.

• We aim to reply to applications within two working days. If you haven’t heard from us, please check your junk folder or get in touch directly.

• Oxfam will reimburse all Volunteer expenses incurred in line with Oxfam’s Volunteer Expenses Policy: travel expenses, & lunch (full day).

• We take the welfare of volunteers and everyone we work with very seriously. We do not tolerate discrimination, bullying, abuse of power, or any sexual misconduct within the workplace.

• Oxfam do not accept applications from anyone on the Sex Offenders list. We may inquire about unspent convictions relevant to the role and you may be required to submit to PVG/DBS check (at no expense to you).
