This volunteer opportunity will help to sort through donated products including clothing, books and bric-a-brac according to their quality and prepare stock for the Lifeline Gold Coast shops. It is ideal that you have some knowledge of brands and are able to identify suitably re-saleable items.
This volunteer opportunity will work along our distribution centre teams to assist in the sorting of donated products for sale in our retail shops to directly fund our 24-hour crisis support line. Your few hours volunteering can and will help save lives!
This is a physical role working in a fast paced, high volume warehouse environment where repetitive tasks are involved so being able to lift (up to around 10kg), carry and stand for long periods of time without restriction is important.
Tasks involved include: Sort through and inspect raw incoming donated products. Categorise and pack donated items ready for transport to our Gold Coast shops. Complete necessary paperwork associated with tasks. Maintain a safe and tidy work area.
