About Royal Voluntary Service

About Opportunity

Retail Volunteers are needed to sell items such as snacks and hot drinks to patients, visitors and staff in our hospital or health care centre shops. Being in hospital or visiting friends and family can be a difficult time so volunteers will also be a friendly and compassionate point of contact for customers. This is an ideal opportunity if you want to make new friends, to develop your skills and experience in a hospital and retail environment and contribute to the work of the charity by enriching the lives of older people and helping them get the best from life. You'll need to have a friendly personality and good communication and listening skills. Training will be provided and you'll be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses.
