Volunteering for Fairtrade at St Michaels

Come and join our friendly team at Fairtrade at St.Michaels.

Would you like to work in a team of friendly and interesting people, learn new things, new skills and grow in confidence? We have a wide range of volunteers who all play their part to support fairtrade producers across the world. We are also important to the local community as we have many regular customers who appreciate the special environment of our shop. We are independent and sell a range of products that often cannot be found elsewhere in Oxford. We provide a real alternative to the high-street shops!

Our unique shop could not run without the commitment and hard work of our volunteers who create a very special atmosphere of enthusiasm and fun.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team. No experience is necessary, just a lot of enthusiasm! The normal commitment is one half-day shift per week or fortnight. (The morning shift runs from 10am to 1.30pm and the afternoon shift from 1.30pm to 5pm), but we will consider other working times too – so feel free to ask.

What will I be doing?

The roles and responsibilities of a volunteers include:

  • Serving customers and cash handling
  • Keeping the premises clean and tidy
  • Checking deliveries
  • Pricing stock
  • Displaying stock

We provide full training and in return for volunteers’ hard work, we cover travel expenses, hold an annual social event at Christmas and volunteers are entitled to a discount.  For more information take a look at our youtube video.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email the Manager at to get more information, or pop into the shop Monday to Saturday between 11am and 4pm for a chat.

Meet our volunteers

From a few spare hours to years of dedication, volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are helping to make a difference. But giving up your free time is only a part of the story, as these inspiring volunteers show.
