Description

Do you love to chat and get to know people? Can you talk about anything and everything? If this sounds like you we have a fantastic opportunity to let you do just that!

In our shops we talk to our customers, make them feel welcome, help them find the things they’re looking for and inform them of the BHF’s life saving heart research. So, we’re always looking for outgoing and enthusiastic customer service volunteers.

We need volunteers in our Furniture store working on the till, or taking phonecalls, or in the warehouse.

We’ll provide you with all the support and help you need. Perfect for enhancing your CV and skills set; we also offer our volunteers the choice to do free NVQ qualifications.*

* England shops only, subject to eligibility. Anyone over 19 who is volunteering with us regularly and not in full time work can gain free NVQs at the shop. No additonal travel as the assessor comes to the shop.

Join our battle to beat heartbreak forever; every minute you volunteer helps us raise money that saves lives.

Organisation Description

The British Heart Foundation's mission is to win the fight against cardiovascular disease, and our vision is a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from heart disease, stroke, diabetes and vascular dementia.

Our volunteers help keep our two Taunton shops running, which in turn keeps our researchers battling to find new ways to help those living with heart disease. Every pound raised, every minute of your time, and every donation to our shops helps make a huge difference to people's lives.

You could help in our Furniture store on the till, taking phone calls or in the warehouse, or alternatively you could help in our new clothing, books and music shop to run our music and film departments, help on the tills, or dive into our books for a few hours a week – however you help either shop, it will help raise money that will save lives.
