For a volunteer there is no interview. You fill in an application form and get invited to an induction which takes about two hours. This involves reading through and signing lots of paperwork and watching a short health and safety video. The interview process for a paid member of staff is quite different. You get invited to an interview. The questions are all predetermined and it's based on a scoring system, I believe. The questions are fairly standard "what would you do in this scenario" / "tell us about your previous retail experience" etc. etc.

Barnardo's has a dress code much like any other retail based job. For a volunteer position it doesn't make much difference. Only thing to be aware of is no open sandals and no jeans on the shop floor. If it's an interview for a paid position I would definitely recommend smart clothing. Black trousers and a blouse or something similar to that that.

Working hours depend on the position. For a manager it's 35 hours per week working 5 days from 9am to 5.30pm. Store associates are contracted to work 3 days a week from 9am to 5-30pm. Sometimes you will be expected to do overtime/cover other shops.

I applied for a part time role as a paid store associate on the Barnardo's careers page online and received an email a couple of days later inviting me to an interview. The day after the interview I received a phonecall offering me the job. From there I had two weeks training.
