The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire is embarking on an exciting project to create a pop-up shop for 6 weeks in The Westgate Arcade, Queensgate Shopping Centre, Peterborough. The gift shop will be crucial in raising the profile of the Wildlife Trust and generating more income for the work we do around the three counties. The shop will also promote and sell memberships of The Wildlife Trust. 

The role of Volunteer Retail Assistant will be vital in generating extra income but can be flexible to your skills and interests, and will entail some or all of the following:

  • working with staff and other volunteers to provide a positive and welcoming first impression for all customers
  • selling our range of gift items at the shop
  • restocking retail products and information sources as required
  • promoting and selling memberships and gift memberships of The Wildlife Trust
  • providing information on the Wildlife Trust and Wildlife Trust membership
  • Using the till and handling cash
  • ensuring the counter and shop are kept organised and tidy
