Treasure Seek to find work

This challenge is specifically for people looking to find paid employment. Through volunteering at Treasure Seekers Gift Shop on Westgate Street you will gain skills and experience that you can talk about in interviews and application form. You will gain experience, confidence and skills in the shop with things like money handling, stock taking, displaying items for sales and customer service.  During your time with us we will also support you with things like CV writing skills to help you find paid employment.


Here at Treasure Seekers we believe that every single person has something to give to the community. We also believe that when someone is in a nurturing community they can grow and develop to become the best version of themselves. All of our volunteering opportunities are fully supported to help you be part of something bigger, grow and develop your skills and grow in confidence.


We positively welcome all people in our community as volunteers at Treasure Seekers.

What's involved?

In the Treasure Seekers gift shop you will do a whole host of duties. You will gain experience and practice in good customer service and welcoming customers in a warm and friendly manner. You’ll become confident with cash handling and cashing up. You’ll learn good techniques for displaying stock to entice as many people to buy as much as possible. You’ll also do stock takes and restock the shelves.


Our gift shop is open Mondays - Saturday, 10am – 4pm so there are lots of shifts to be filled.


Why get involved?

As well as gaining great experience in all aspects of retail work in a friendly and supportive environment that will help you gain paid employment, you will also get help with building up and presenting your CV. Our manager Jake has a comprehensive training programme that will be tailored and structured to suit you to make sure that you gain confidence and skills that you can take to other jobs.
