About Oxfam Ireland
Oxfam is a global movement of people who won’t live with the injustice of poverty. Volunteers play a vital role in our work. We have many exciting opportunities for people who want to make a difference and help us achieve our goals.
Oxfam shops play a significant part in raising vital funds for our work around the world. From your local shop and community you can make a significant contribution to the lives of people in greatest need.
Our shops are hives of activity with lots of chat, opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. You’ll sort, prepare and sell both new and second hand clothes, books, accessories, furniture and even bridal wear in some locations, as well as get to meet the locals.
Our shops are run by wonderful dedicated crews of volunteers. It’s a team approach and we like to have fun while getting the job done. Whether behind the scenes or front of house each team member role ensures our shops run seamlessly, to deliver vital funds that make a direct difference to people’s lives around the world.
So if you have a flair for design, an eye for detail or a love of customer service then our shops need you. Join the global movement to end poverty.
