We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable volunteers to help out in our 15 stores across London.

Octavia shops cater a range of clothes and fashion accessories perfectly in tune with their stylish locations. Much of this is thanks to the genuine passion, talent and know-how of our wonderful volunteers.

Volunteering in our charity shops presents a fantastic opportunity to gain new skills and experiences and to enhance your CV and employment prospects whilst meeting new people from a diverse range of backgrounds.

The role is varied and can include sorting stock, operating tills, working on the shop floor, curating window displays and dealing with customers. 

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please fill out the form available here. 

A full list of our shops and more information about volunteering, is available here.

Octavia   Adrian Volunteer   82OCT 280917 0010'I can instantly see the results of the efforts of fellow workers and myself, whether it is giving fashion advice to a customer or sorting through donations that will enable a person to have the clothes to attend a job interview, to keep warm or just to feel happy that they have brought something that makes them feel good. Having contact with such a large community demographic has given me a great sense of achievement. I have met volunteers from many walks of like and age groups, including teachers, artists, students and people finding a way back into employment.'
