We are looking to recruit volunteers to join our online bookshop team, based in Shoreditch. The online bookshop is staffed by volunteers who sell donated books online to raise money for Amnesty.

About the role

Donations of books come in to the Amnesty office from publishers, publications and individuals in London and these books are sorted and sold by the online bookshop team. Volunteers price the books and list them for sale on Amazon. This includes researching unusual or expensive books and shelving them within our systems. Volunteers also package and dispatch books that have sold and respond to customer enquiries. The team also monitor what books haven’t sold and remove them from sale or change the listing as appropriate. Generally, volunteers are expected to commit to at least one regular four-hour shift every week (a morning or an afternoon).

About you

This role would suit someone with a passion for books who has a few hours a week to give to Amnesty. No previous retail experience is required but basic computer skills are essential (ability to use email, browse the web etc.). We’re looking for someone organised and enthusiastic to join our team.
