We have a variety of roles available:

Pick up and deliver furniture in Wellington and the surrounding area.

What you will get out of it

What is expected of me?

Van drivers and their assistants are expected to make a long term commitment of at least one day per week. Retail assistants are expected to commit to at least one full or half day shift per week, over a long period of time. Volunteers will also need to attend a short training session and provide references. These roles will not require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
