St Ann’s Hospice is a charity which cares for thousands of people with life-limiting illnesses every year.
The hospice provides a free service to patients, carers and their loved ones from three sites in Greater Manchester, and a range of outreach services, supporting patients in the local community and their own homes.
Around a third of St Ann’s funding comes from the NHS, the rest from donations and the kind support of people who raise money to help patients and their families. Every penny makes a real difference to those who really need it–right when they need it most.
St Ann's Hospice operate a successful online business selling New Goods and donated items through eBay, Amazon and Instagram. The volunteer role is open to anyone over the age of 16 who would like to join our fun and friendly team based in Stockport at our Distribution centre. The role includes taking product photos using our photo booth and cameras, writing vibrant item descriptions, researching unusual or Antique items to establish value and helping with marketing and promotion. We are looking for people with passion with various interests including fashion, vintage, Music, and Computers & gaming. The online sales department is a big part of St Ann’s Hospice future trading plans so it is a great opportunity to experience how a busy online operation is run and also to utilise your own interests and skills. We operate Monday to Friday 8am -4pm and if people want to join us in small groups and work alongside a friend we are more than happy to accommodate! The role isn’t public facing but it is an exciting and vibrant atmosphere with all musical tastes accommodated and allowed to contribute to the days playlist! We have items coming in daily from our 14 charity shops across Greater Manchester and each delivery provides something unexpected and unique whether it’s a vintage Commodore 64 or the latest designer handbags. The role suits those who have at least basic computer skills and are familiar with Amazon and eBay although full training is provided. What we are really looking for is someone who enjoys a challenge and is happy to get stuck in and put forward ideas and suggestions on how to improve our online department even further and is looking for a flexible volunteer role that works around their studies and commitments and provides relevant and useful experiences. We are currently operating in strict accordance to social distancing guidelines and additional PPE is available for all volunteers.
