Fantastic volunteering opportunity in our sales department

09 February 2020

Sales Volunteer

Disability Rights UK is the leading charity of its kind in the UK, run by and for people with lived experience of disability or health conditions. We work to create a society where everyone with lived experience of disability or health conditions can participate equally as full citizens.

As part of our commitment to providing accurate, up to date information we produce the Disability Rights Handbook, an annual publication now on its 45th edition which will be published in April.

We also sell the Radar NKS key, which provides disabled people with access to more than 9,000 disabled toilets across the UK. At our busiest, we can dispatch up to 400 keys per week.

We are looking for a volunteer to join our sales team and learn the various aspects of a busy sales department. Duties will include:

  • Answering telephone enquiries
  • Taking and placing sales orders
  • Processing transactions received via our online shop
  • Managing and sorting incoming post
  • Packing and Dispatching products.

Applicants should:

  • Be comfortable taking inbound and making outbound telephone calls
  • Be happy working with numbers
  • Have good written and oral communications skills
  • Be able to commit to at least one day per week, for an initial period of three months
  • Be able to travel to our office in London E20.

This is a fantastic opportunity to support our work to improve the independence of disabled people. In the past our volunteers have developed good office and clerical experience and used this volunteering opportunity as a platform from which to move into paid employment. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people. Reasonable expenses will be paid.

To register your interest, please send your CV to steve.newsham@disabilityrightsuk.org.
