What’s In It For You:
You will get to experience a Clothing Sample Sale. As well as supporting Get A-Head with the event, you’ll develop your Customer Service Skills and help deliver a positive experience for the customer enabling us to raise essential funds for the Charity. There may be the possibility of picking up a great bargain as well. Take a look at the video from the last sale we worked at
Why We Need You:
We have been offered the fantastic opportunity to work at these events and this will enable us to raise the profile of Get A-Head, as well as much needed funds to support our work.
We have been asked to man and run the cloakroom, as it will be compulsory for all bags and coats to be checked in at the event and all attendees will be asked to pay a discretionary £1 for this service. All of the proceeds will be donated to Get A-Head. At previous events over 2,000 people have attended so it will be a busy 4 days.
The Skills You Need:
You’ll need to be friendly and welcoming, and enjoy talking to members of the public. The ability to multitask is a must. We will be representing both the Charity and the Event, so a polite and efficient, can-do attitude would be perfect.
Roles will include:
- Meeting and greeting
- Assisting with the Cloakroom
- Taking donations
- Volunteers will be provided with a Get A-Head T-shirt and we would suggest wearing comfortable shoes/trainers as we will be on our feet for most of the time.
- All training will be given before the start of each session.
- Snacks and soft drinks will be provided, however, please feel free to bring a sandwich or similar if you wish.
- Reasonable travel expenses will be re-imbursed on production of receipts/tickets
