Albert Park Shop

An iconic shop, and a decades-long established part of the community.

Volunteers are the heart of our organisation and a crucial part of our op shops. There are exciting opportunities for you to join the Albert Park team - and know the work you do will have a direct impact, supporting Emergency Relief programs and the local community.

At this store our customers find a welcoming space, where they can shop a beautifully presented range of pre-loved homewares, fashion, artworks, and more. In joining our volunteer team you will make new friends, use your skills and learn new ones, be creative and social, and of course have fun!

If you have four hours or more to spare a fortnight, and you like people, customer service, merchandising, fashion, have an interest in the environment, are task-oriented - any or all of the above! – then this opportunity is for you. We look forward to getting to know you, and welcoming you to our team.

 

What is it like to work in the Op Shop?

“Each day is different — I could be hanging and tagging donated items, working on the register, sorting items or clearing shelves that need to be dusted. Lunchtime is always busy, so while we potter about, we focus on greeting people as they walk in to the shop. What I like most about helping out here is the variety — both in the people who visit the shop and those who work here, as well as the amazing range of items that are donated to us. There is never a dull moment and I’m grateful we all get along really well — even when we’re under the pump. We all support each other to deal with some of our more challenging customers — we know that working together is the best way to get through the day and no-one is expected to do anything they are uncomfortable with.” – Op Shop Team Member
