Ightham Mote volunteer retail assistants

Visitors browsing local produce in the gift shop

Our retail assistants are an essential part of the shop, assisting the Shop Manager to create a great shopping experience and raise funds for our conservation work at Ightham Mote.

You don’t need any experience as training will be provided, and there is no minimum commitment.

You will be personable, friendly and polite, and have a basic grasp of math’s. As well as serving customers, you’ll help keep the shop displays tidy, and well-stocked.

In addition to the main shop, we also have a second-hand bookshop, seasonal pop-up shop and run a stall outside during some of our event days.
