Volunteering at a Oxfam charity shop watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi I am 19 years old. I am unemployed at the moment. I want to work at a Oxfam charity shop to gain some work experience, learn new skills, improve my CV and get some references for a proper paid chop in the near future.

    The problem is when I went to Oxfam and get the application form. It states we need two references. However, I don't have anyone to list down. My former teachers have left their job. I have never had a proper job before. So what do I do?? Will a retail charity shop care or check references? Or, shall I just tell them the truth? I like to hear your thoughts.

    I think that it's best to be honest with them, they'll definitely appreciate it and i'm sure they'll understand.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
