The Role

Our e-Commerce team are responsible for an Aladdin's cave of unique, antique and collectable items. Being more specialist, and hopefully higher value, all items need researching, listing, packing, and labelling to make sure we're always getting the highest price possible.

It will help us to raise vital funds for our expert care, so you'll know you're making a direct difference to the patients and families that we support.

  • Discuss any queries, problems or observations with your manager.
  • Adhere to our Volunteering Code of Conduct at all times.
  • Attend relevant meetings & undertake all training required.
  • Act as an ambassador for St Catherine's at all times.
