Volunteering & Jobs
We are currently hiring!
Small, independent, non-for-profit thrift shop located in Roslindale Village is in search of a part time sales associate. The shop is run by a dedicated group of volunteers, along with the shop manager, assistant manager, and a few part time staff members. The Shop is open Monday-Saturday from 9:30am to 5:00pm. The position for hire is for 2 days (16 hours per week)- which includes the occasional weekend shift. Starting hourly rate is $14 and is competitive with the retail non-profit industry. There is a generous store discount as well as other benefits, which come from working at this special shop.
The ideal candidate has a flexible schedule, an eye for space and design, retail/customer service experience, physically fit enough to carry furniture and donations (i.e. boxes weighing 50 lbs). Ideally, you are fun, personable and interested in working in a very busy non-for-profit retail environment. Duties include running a cash register, assisting customers, receiving donations, moving furniture and donations, and organizing and cleaning the retail space.
Our customers and donors represent diverse and international populations, and the organization strives to include a staff that reflects this wonderful diversity. We believe that embracing staff with perspectives on marginalized groups must be centered in the work that we do. Thus, people of color, LGBTQ, women and bilingual/international candidates are strongly urged to apply.
All proceeds from the shop benefit The Home for Little Wanderers- A family and child service agency whose mission is to ensure the healthy behavioral, emotional, social and educational development and physical well-being of children and families living in at-risk circumstances.
The Shop intends on following all of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston guidelines to ensure public safety during the coronavirus pandemic. These measures include requiring that all staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated. Other measures include requiring face masks to enter the shop, providing face shields for staff, limiting customer occupancy to ensure social distancing, regular disinfecting of surfaces, and plexiglass at register display and sales counters.
