Join Our Team

Volunteer with Furniture MineYOU can make a meaningful difference to people's lives in North Staffordshire by joining our team!

At Emmaus Furniture Mine we have a small staff team but a large demand for volunteers and we would welcome you to join us! 

Our volunteers are a mix of people all donating their time to 'give something back' to the local community.  Some of our volunteers are looking to gain the vital work experience and valuable skills that help them to find a paid job and some just want to support a worthwhile charity.  Whatever your reason for volunteering, and how little or much time you can offer us, we would be delighted to hear from you today.

Volunteering can also help overcome personal barriers to work such as temporary homelessness and health problems as volunteering provides each person with steady work, self-respect, a boost in their confidence, and personal motivation to make tomorrow a brighter day.

Emmaus Furniture Mine supports its volunteers by also providing additional activities such as attending field trips to build self-confidence and team work.  We can pay for local bus travel and provide our volunteers with a free lunch each day they are with us.

Current opportuities for volunteers include:

  • Warehousing - we collect and sell hundreds of items every week
  • Logistics and distribution - we need drivers and cab-mates for the vans
  • Retail customer service - we have two shops with opportunities on the 'shop floor'
  • Administration - our phones & office administration is the backbone of the business
