As a volunteer at an RSPCA Charity Shop

Rated 4 out of 5

Work was very relaxed and did not require a lot of effort. Mostly consists of organising stock on shelves, making sure it is placed correctly, cleanup if necessary, accepting donations, and working at the cash register. Very simple volunteer work.


Easy work

Okay place for work experience

Management is poor, they don’t really seem to appreciate the work of the volunteers. Unhappy place, staff don’t seem to enjoy it there. Basic tasks such as walking and play with dogs. Good chance to experience different breeds and personalities.

Great place to work

Rated 5 out of 5

I really enjoyed my five years working here, great place to work, fair pay and the organisation really looks after their staff. It’s a very rewarding job.

Fun and very Active workplace

Animal care assistants work really hard on a day to day basis. This job is physically demanding and involves lots of outdoor work. I worked with a great team at Brent knoll branch who are committed to finding every animal a loving home. Overall a great place to work if you are prepared to put in a good days work! Very rewarding only downside is low pay but as expected due to being a charity. Definitely recommend working here!
