Distribution Centre, eBay & Depop Volunteering

Our Distribution Centre is based in Avonmouth, just off the Portway. We have a number of varied volunteering roles from taking photos for our eBay and Depop listings to getting out and about with our house clearance team. If you're looking to gain new skills, meet new people or simply to give something back, we would love to hear from you.

eBay and Depop

Our eBay and Depop retail operations offer something a little different, giving you the chance to get creative or specialise in one particular area.

  • Photography - Create eye catching pictures for our listings. We are currently looking for help on Tuesdays. No experience is necessary, you'll be using a 'point and shoot' type camera to photograph the weird and wonderful items we want to sell.

  • Research - Research and value the eclectic assortment of items donated to our eBay and Depop sites.

  • Listings - Are you good with words? Could you 'sell' an item by creating an appealing listing?

  • Dispatch - Pack and post sold items from our busy dispatch area.

  • Stock processing - This involves booking in donations and labelling items. We are currently looking for help on Tuesdays mornings.

  • Specialists - Do you have a particular area of interest or speciality? It could be antiques, collectables, books, music, gaming, jewellery, cameras etc. We'd love to make use of your expertise in the research and preparation of our listings!
