Join our amazing team as a Volunteer and make a difference in your community!

We are always looking for volunteers to join the Fair Trade and Gift Shop in Kew East, Victoria on a regular basis. Shifts are from Monday to Saturdays, and start from 10:00AM to 1:30PM, and afternoons are 1.30PM to 5:00PM.

We have a Covid-safe work environment set up and have taken all measures to ensure our volunteers can work safely.

Daily tasks may vary depending on your interests and skills. Our volunteers spend their time:
  • Pricing and sorting books
  • Product placement
  • Stocking and Merchandising
  • Point of Sale Assistance
  • Keeping the shop tidy
  • Shop and Business management
  • Assisting with our Online Store, & much more

We find the best way for you to help us, help the community and also develop your skills. All our volunteers receive a Certificate of Volunteership after they have served a valued time with us to show a formal appreciation of the impact and support they have contributed and provided to the community.

Whether you’re looking to get your first experience in retail or are a seasoned professional wanting to help the community, we’d love to hear from you!
