    Okay, this is my first tsr post. I just want to know how much work experience do you think is enough in a charity to sustain a weekend or part time retail job. What sort of things would be necessary on a CV, and what is a complete no no.

    I don't think any experience in charity is necessary for a job in retail. I got my job in retail with zero retail experience and I'm still at it 3 years on when not at uni.

    But on your CV you should be honest. Be clear and concise in your written communication. State your strengths and don't mention any weaknesses.

    There are CV helpers on the TSR site, though - perhaps it'd be a good idea to direct some questions at them?

    No I meant in a charity shop, because some jobs prefer experience in retail, since I have none I thought it would be a good decision, but I am unsure as how much work experience in retail (e.g. charity shop) is desired by employers.

    you're asking that if you wanted to work in a charity shop, how much retail experience would you need to hold down the job, right?
