Volunteer Your Time and Experience


The Collective is always looking for ways to create happier, healthier communities. That’s why we’re more than a beautiful, preloved fashion and homewares store. Come join us on our mission to spread joy far and wide by volunteering your time and skills with us.

Can you commit a few hours (or more) a week, either in our boutique Birkenhead store or remotely from home and use your skills and passions to make a real difference in your community?

Furniture repair & refurbishment:

If you have experience that’s wonderful, if not, that’s ok too! We are in desperate need of people who can sand, varnish and splash on a coat of paint to liven up tired pieces of furniture.


We would love help sewing cushion covers, squabs and other items we can breathe life back into with some beautiful new fabric, or quick mends on some of our clothing items.


We are always looking for people to help collect and deliver furniture in our Collective van.

Professional Skills:

We run our business thin on the ground so we are always on the lookout for professionals who can share with us their skill set and knowledge to help us. It could be anything from marketing, social media, IT, design, sponsorship, event management, branding & storytellers, whatever you're good at, we’ll find a job for you!

I’m keen, what do I need to do?

Lou’s excited to hear from you. Please get in touch today by phone, email, or pop into our store and say hello!
