Volunteering

Volunteering

Volunteering at the Co-op is a fantastic way to get more involved.  It provides a great opportunity to connect with the community, learn more about our products and decrease your shopping bills.  It’s also fun! Members can volunteer for up to 4 hours a month, which entitles you to an additional 20% discount off your next $250 worth of shopping. 

Shop volunteers assist staff members to help keep the Co-op running as smoothly as possible. On a typical shift; you may spend your time filling up teas and spices, welcoming and assisting customers, watering the garden, and helping keep the shop clean and tidy. 

We run volunteer training nights twice a month. These evenings provide a thorough orientation to working in the shop; including an overview of volunteering, an in-depth tour and a run through of tasks you will do on shift.  We also cover WH&S, infection control, and communication.  For upcoming dates, speak to staff in store. 

We are also always looking for members with extra skills that they may like to volunteer to the Co-op, to add to our Volunteer Database.   We’d love to know if you have any special skills you could offer, such as;

·        Handy person

·        Electrician

·        Plumber

·        Desktop publishing

·        Research

·        Newsletter contributions

·        PR, marketing, promotion
