St John Store Volunteer - North Shore

Want to make a real difference in your community? Our Op Shop teams do fantastic work in the community selling affordable pre-loved goods, and this helps to fund our essential, lifesaving services and community initiatives.

They have created friendly, supportive community hubs, offering much-needed local services and even help New Zealand to be more environmentally sustainable - more recycling means less landfill!

Maybe you already have retail or customer service experience or perhaps you're looking for an opportunity to learn these skills - either way, we'd love to hear from you.

What's involved? There's plenty of variety in this role, you could be doing anything from: serving customers, cash handling, sorting donated goods, visual merchandising, tidying the store. Interested? So, what next? To submit your expression of interest please apply via our website.


We're looking for caring individuals keen to give back to their community. Retail experience is great but not essential. If you're keen to learn, enthusiastic and reliable, then we can teach you the skills you need.

If you are at least 18 years old, and are keen to join our Op Shop team then please apply! We also welcome teenagers who are over 16 years old and would like to gain some retail experience, we'd love to support your development and provide supervision while you volunteer with us!

A Ministry of Justice background check is required for this role.

Time commitment:

We're looking for people who can spare 4 hours a week (one half-day shift), ideally for at least 6 - 12 months.

Getting started:
The first step is to express your interest by applying directly to the organisation. You will then be able to find out more about the role and how to proceed.
