Ebay Volunteer wanted

EBay logo

We need a new volunteer to manage the Carefree Kids Ebay shop. Help us raise funds, and learn some new, useful skills!

Starting date

  • From March / April 2019.
  • A handover from our existing Ebay volunteer will be arranged.


This role involves listing items on Ebay, sourcing items to sell (Carefree Kids can assist with this), answering buyers’ questions, posting purchased items and liaising with the Carefree Kids office periodically.

Hours and term

The hours are flexible we think 2-3 hours per week will be enough to maintain the work required, for posting packages you will need to be available during post office opening hours. We are looking for someone who can commit to this voluntary permanent role on a long term basis.

Skills needed

  • IT skills to navigate the Ebay seller site and to communicate with buyers.
  • Communication skills to describe the items on sale and to answer buyers’ questions.
  • Planning and organising skills to plan when to list and end items, as well as planning posting dates and calculating postage costs.

Other requirements

You will be working from home so will need to have a PC or similar device and internet access.


Some knowledge of selling or buying on Ebay would be beneficial, but is not essential.

Benefits of the role

You will be helping our small local children’s charity to raise much needed funds, and to maintain diverse fundraising options crucial to supporting our therapeutic work.

The role is flexible and you will be working from home. Our previous Ebay sellers have found the role enjoyable and rewarding.

Carefree Kids staff team are here to support you where needed, but you need to be self-motivated. The skills and experience from this role may be useful when looking for work and Carefree Kids can provide references after a period of time.
