With donated goods coming in, being collected from and delivered across West and North Norfolk and the Fens, it's crucial we have a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. Our retail income makes a huge contribution to the funding of the Hospice's services.

This is a great opportunity for someone who is good with people, well organised, reliable and trustworthy and has the ability to lift and move furniture with support. You will meet new people and make new friends across our Retail division, whilst helping The Norfolk Hospice provide outstanding care for local people living with life-shortening conditions.

It would be great if you could make a regular commitment for the hours that you are happy to attend, this would preferably be a four hour shift per week in the Warehouse or a day if going out on the vans.

Full training and support will be given.
