Shop Roles

We are we looking for?

You must be reliable, hard-working and able to work on your own AND as part of a team to a given standard.

Please bear in mind that we are a small shelter and may not have suitable space straight away- if this is the case you will be asked to be added to a waiting list, to be contacted when an appropriate space comes up.

Although we understand that you might not be able to attend some of your allotted sessions, we do ask that you take this placement seriously and make every effort to maintain your attendance. Repeatedly not attending your slot will lead to you being asked to no longer volunteer.

As a thank you for their hard work, volunteer fundraisers are often asked to visit The Shelter and spend some time with the cats in our care after an event or shift.

 

The Sheffield Cats Shelter Volunteer Driver

Volunteer drivers are trusted with many jobs during their time with us. They are mostly asked to drive to collect donations from kind donors, and take them either to The Shelter or to our Charity Shop.

They may also be asked to transport items from The Shelter to The Shop or vice versa, or to locations where we are hosting events or fundraising. You will need to have a Full UK Driving licence, but needn’t have your own vehicle.
