  • work with and manage volunteers who are integral to our business.

Our ideal candidates will have proven retail management experience and flexibility in their working hours/days, as is the ability to work up to a maximum of 37.5 hours per week when required.

The hospice offers a generous holiday allowance, pension and other staff benefits.
