Do you believe that homelessness should be eradicated?
HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately live independently in the community.
Are you a motivated and passionate individual looking to make a real difference in your local community? Do you have an interest in fashion, furniture or retail, and want to put this to good use helping others less fortunate? If so, we would love you to become a member of our growing Charity Shops team.

Have experience of working in a fast-paced retail environment.
Good knowledge of a broad range of product types, including clothing, household and furniture.

Have empathy and understanding for local people experiencing homelessness.
