Your local unique volunteering role awaits

Brunswick Shop

A Unique op Shopping experience is coming to Brunswick. 

From vintage dresses to quirky homewares and great fashion our Shop is full of gems. Uniting Op Shops provide affordable clothing and homeware items in a welcoming and inclusive environment, while providing an essential role in funding Uniting’s program delivery.

Our aim is to delight customers in a meaningful and memorable way in a contemporary retail environment that is positive, creative, inclusive and fun! From creating a vibrant and dynamic space using imaginative displays of quality donations, to serving and assisting customers, working behind the scenes with sorting and tagging new stock or participating in periodic events such as vintage or designer stock sales, the Preston shop is unique. Why not add your talents to the team?

Volunteers are at the heart of our organisation and a crucial part of our retail shops. We are flexible and work to accommodate busy volunteers. Ideally you'll be available 1 – 3 days per week for full day or half day shifts. If you like people, customer service, merchandising, fashion, have an interest in the environment and learning new skills - any or all the above! – then this opportunity is for you. We look forward to getting to know you and welcoming you to our team!  All activities are Centrelink approved.

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
