Bank Furniture Collections Operatives

Our ten charity shops, located all across the Borough of Bolton, as well as our Online Sales Office and Café, aim to provide regular and sustainable sources of income to support the work of Bolton Hospice.  Each outlet helps us generate the vital income we need to provide expert care and support for local people and their families when they need it most.

To supplement our permanent team and help with peaks and troughs, we have a team of ‘bank staff’ who provide cover for planned and unplanned shortfalls in staffing, covering vacancies and staff absences.  We are now seeking to recruit experienced and enthusiastic bank Furniture Collections Operatives to provide operational cover, collecting and delivering items to and from our charity shops.
