Organization: Helping with Furniture

Commitment: Ongoing (more than a year)

Availability: Flexible

Language Preference: Bilingual

Number of Positions Available: 3

Location: Ottawa - East

Deadline: Jan 31, 2020


HWF is looking to recruit a volunteer furniture selector. This will be a new role at HWF and is being created in order to speed up the organisation of the deliveries to HWF clients on Wednesday evenings. This person will be responsible to pre-select the furniture for clients at the HWF warehouse in advance of the Wednesday night deliveries. We are looking for someone who is creative and has an eye for details. We don’t always have all of the items a client requires, but we do try to ensure what they receive looks nice together and is in good working order, so this position will have an important role in serving the HWF clients.

There are several options available for the day and time required for this job, for example Wednesdays in the late afternoon or early evening, which can be discussed and agreed.

Training through pairing with an experienced volunteer will be provided for the first couple of weeks.
