Retail Jobs at St Peter's Hospice

St Peter's Hospice is hiring for a range of paid vacancies across our 45 charity shops in Bristol.

We're currently hiring for a range of roles in our charity shops. Do you have an eye for fashion? Enjoy making a difference? Are you passionate about sustainability?

If you'd like to work for the largest local retail charity in the Bristol area, we'd love to hear from you.

Whether you're someone who's looking to take their first step into retail or your next step up, an existing charity retail manager or maybe you have a wealth of experience in mainstream retail and you're looking for a change, take a look at our current vacancies below. There is something for everyone!

Shop manager


great reasons to work for us:


Better work life balance: Shop hours are usually 8.45 - 17.15… there are no 4am SALE set ups and no long shifts well into the night, as you'd find in mainstream retail.


Variety & autonomy: No two days are the same! The incoming donations help shape your day and there is lots of autonomy in terms of visual merchandising and planning trade.


Part of a 'family': Of course we have targets but charity retail is much more close-knit than mainstream retail, with a culture of value, support and mentoring of new starters.


Working with volunteers: It can be so rewarding and you learn so much from meeting a wide range of people with varying ages, skills, learning and physical disabilities.


The cause: The cause is at the heart of everything we do. Every single day you go home knowing that you have contributed to such an amazing charity.


Progressive thinking: We are always one-step ahead and are very progressive in our retail strategy, such as new store concepts, our gift card and pop up shops.


No 1 for charity retail: So many people tell us we are the best at merchandising and how we trade and that we set the standard for high street charity retail.


Collaborative environment: We are supported to try things and fail forward by learning from our mistakes. We encourage our staff to be empowered and run with ideas.


Structured and supportive on-boarding: Our on-boarding involves training in different areas to make sure you get a really well rounded experience.


And finally - fun! There is lots of laughter, teamwork, camaraderie and banter, it just makes the day go so much quicker!


You'll be joining a passionate and dedicated team and in return you can enjoy some great benefits:

  • Contributory pension
  • A minimum of 27 days' holiday
  • Access to occupational health service and employee assistance programme
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Contributory health cash plan
