The Salvation Army Family Stores are vibrant places where great things happen: generous people donate amazing items, customers enjoy an ever-changing selection of goods, volunteers gain friendships and share experiences, all whilst raising much-needed funds to assist the most vulnerable in your community. You can be a part of this by volunteering a few hours per week as a retail Furniture Sales Assistant helping with sales, merchandising and quality control.
A typical day as a volunteer Customer Service Assistant in furniture will see you attending to customer needs whilst maintaining a welcoming environment and contributing to a positive in-store experience. This role supports the Store Manager in the day to day operations and sales of furniture items. You will also be assisting in point of sale transactions for furniture including cash handling, cash register and EFTPOS. Your attention to detail and a desire for order and sparkle will be assets in this role, as will your upbeat and friendly attitude.
Equally important, all Customer Service Assistants are responsible for fostering a culture of inclusiveness and community spirit amongst the volunteer team, which will in turn enhance the customer experience in the store.
