Sell supplies to monsters (and the odd human)

You can volunteer at Hoxton Street Monster Supplies as a shopkeeper or an online order clerk.

Shopkeepers

We need morbid mortals to keep Hoxton’s monstrous creatures stocked with their daily essentials, and also serve and unwelcome the odd human customer too.

Two volunteer shopkeepers.

As a shopkeeper, you’ll become an expert in products like Banshee Balls, Cubed Earwax and the shop’s range of Tinned Fear. You’ll quickly become accustomed to explaining the origins, concoction, benefits and side effects of products to the shop’s customers, living, dead and undead. We ask only that volunteers have basic level Zombie and English language skills.

Hoxton Street Monster Supplies can provide lots of opportunities to build customer service, communication and retail skills. References are also available for longer term, dedicated and punctual volunteers.

Because monsters all over the country need supplies too…

Are you mortal? Familiar with the World Wide Web? No, it’s not something that’s been spun by a giant spider for capturing dragons. Some of the shop’s human and more gruesome customers have been using it to purchase products online.

We need a few human creatures, with good brains in their heads, to help sort, pack and post orders. You will get full training on what to do and we provide volunteers with the odd cup of witches brew to see you through the shift. If you would like some experience working for a charity but don’t like the idea of being maimed or eaten then this role is just what the witch doctor ordered.
