Summer 2015 Volunteering Opportunities

Free time this summer?

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival brings in thousands of extra customers and we need your help to keep the shop running over the summer season. We're open 7 days a week, so we need lots of extra helpers to run our shop, outside marquee and pop-up cafe.

If you feel inspired to engage with customers and contribute to our ethical business, please get in touch

Minimum requirements

  • 1 x ½ day a week (4hrs approx - includes a tea break)
  • Bundles of enthusiasm
  • Happy to interact with customers
  • Competent speaking English
  • Age 16+

Ideal but not necessary

  • Experience working in a retail environment
  • Cash handling experience
  • Cafe experience
  • Some interest in fair trade, ethical or ecological issues

What's in it for me?

  • Get retail experience in a really friendly, supportive environment - training will be provided
  • Meet loads of new people
  • Learn about ethical business, fair trade and environmental issues
  • A kick up the bum to get out the house!
