Furniture Centre Driver / Sales Assistant (Holsworthy)

One post at 30 hours per week, to be worked over four days per week including Saturdays, 8.30am – 4.30pm. Occasional Sunday working from our Barnstaple Furniture Centre may be required.

This post will be primarily based at our Holsworthy Furniture Centre but may also include working from our Barnstaple Furniture Centre on occasion. Additional hours will be required to cover our other drivers during periods of absence.

The services we provide to our patients rely on the generosity of our donors and income generated, to which our hospice shops contributed in excess of £1m income last year.

To support this we are now seeking an enthusiastic, motivated individual to provide a first class customer service in our furniture store.  Supporting the team throughout the day, you will have excellent communication skills, a tactful and diplomatic approach and be a great team player.

Flexibility is essential as priorities can change very quickly, as is the ability to use judgement and initiative. This role will involve working closely with assigned volunteers and meeting members of the public.

This role will involve driving a 3.5 ton Ford Transit van and moving and lifting large quantities of furniture and donated stock.  A good level of physical fitness and a driving licence with Category C1 is essential.

For an informal discussion please contact Adrian Shearing, Holsworthy Furniture Centre Manager on 01409 255535.

Closing date for applications is noon on Thursday 30th May 2019.
Interviews will be held on Wednesday 19th June 2019.
