Op shop volunteering

Inside the op shop are three female volunteers, trying on different hats, posing and laughing

We are always looking for volunteers to help out in our 12 op shops across Melbourne. Come and join our family!

Volunteering is a great way to;

  • Develop customer service and retail skills,
  • Connect with your community,
  • Meet new friends, and
  • Help to raise funds for our programs and services.

Our stores are open seven days a week and heavily rely on the ongoing support of volunteers to assist with the sale of goods, customer service, visual merchandising and stock replenishment.

If you have knowledge or interest in a particular stock item or are passionate about fashion, books or anything in between, we would love to hear from you.
