How you can get involved…
Our shop volunteers usually commit to one four-hour session a week, although some do more, some do less! The great thing about being a volunteer is that you can work in whatever way suits you!
Volunteers are involved in all aspects of shop life and are crucial to its smooth running – they’re the life-blood of Just Fair Trade!
Where possible we like our volunteers to have…
- * Lots of retail experience (although customer service experience in a different work environment can also be really useful)
- * Transferable skills developed in a vibrant, busy working environment
- * Energy and enthusiasm
- * A passion for people

Sell fair trade products yourself
We love to get fair trade products out of the shop and into new places through our sale or return service! We’ve found that a great way of introducing a new group of people to fair trade products is to encourage people to consider hosting a stall at a community event – a school fete, church coffee morning, Christmas market etc. In fact, this is how Just Fair Trade started out – a group of friends selling fair trade goods to their community!

Just Fair Trade is on Facebook and Twitter and we work hard to make sure we keep you up-to-date with plans, ideas and opportunities! Get involved – liking and sharing our posts and photos is also a great way of promoting the shop and our products. You can even get more involved with some of our suppliers and producers!
Just Fair Trade produces a monthly newsletter with information about upcoming events and featured products. It’s an opportunity to share a bit more information than there’s space for on Facebook or Twitter so why not sign up and then forward it round to your family and friends each month?!
This is probably the most effective way of letting people know about Just Fair Trade! Please tell your friends and family about the shop and encourage them to come and visit themselves!
Shop at Just Fair Trade!
And last but by no means least, we’d love you to shop with us!! The more people we get through the door, the greater the opportunity we have to change lives!
