We are looking for a Retail Assistant who is passionate about charity retail and helping a good cause.

We have 5 shops in Edinburgh to support the vital services we provide. All our services focus on relieving the immediate suffering and meeting the long terms needs of homeless and vulnerable people in Scotland. We don’t just work with homeless people. We stop people becoming homeless in the first place. When you join Bethany you are supporting projects such as the Welcome Centre, Care Van, Family Support work, Housing Support, etc.

As a Retail Assistant you will join a fantastic team of staff and volunteers.

You will make decisions on the sorting, recycling, pricing and displaying of donated goods in line with pricing guidelines for the shop.

This position also requires competent use of the till, and some financial tasks. You will be opening up and closing the shop, working alternating Saturdays. When working without a manager in the shop, you are required to follow daily and weekly work plans as set out by the Shop Manager.
