The local department, Home-Start Odense runs a recycling & upcycling store, which helps finance the organization's support for pressed families with children in Odense. We are looking for a coordinator who wants to have an overview of Recycling & Design. The job is flexible and the framework in Recycling & Design you are helping to set. We are very informal and it is important for us that we can be open and honest with each other. You will not be left with the tasks alone, but in dialogue with Home-start Odense's two coordinators.

Home-Start Family contact Odense is a voluntary social organization that supports pressed families with at least one child under school age. Our families' need for help is diverse, perhaps the family has a limited network, generally or locally, has physical or mental problems, is challenged in the labor market or affected by illness. Families need support, support and sparring. With Recycling & Design we help to self-finance the support for the families and therefore it is an important part of Home-Start Family Contact Odense.

As a volunteer store coordinator, you will be responsible for:

  • Employee meetings (in daytime), including shift planning with the volunteers
  • Coordinator for volunteers
  • Coordination with volunteers at events
  • Ideas and actions
  • Branding / visibility of Recycling & Design
  • Possible launch of Webshop in collaboration with Storms Pakhus other creative workshops

As a volunteer store coordinator you will:

  • Joy knows that you make a difference for children, parents and volunteers
  • Academic upgrading
  • Personal development
  • New network and sweet colleagues
  • Offered 5 yearly theme and network days and events with our other volunteers

We have different (children's) activities that must attract customers and, in general, draw attention to the store and the organization's work. They are planned in step with Storms Pakhus other activities / events, and are planned in cooperation with the volunteers.

In mid / end 2019, we intend to establish a webshop, as there is great demand for our homemade / upcycled products in other parts of the country. If you have experience with this or just the courage to get into it, then it is nice, but not a requirement.

We expect you to:

  • Have experience with being in a shop or the like.
  • Has flair for design and expression
  • Is enterprising, service minded, creative and spacious

The number of hours is agreed based on your wishes and possibilities. We imagine somewhere between 5-8 hours weekly.

If you have questions about the above and want to hear more, please feel free to contact us.

We are looking forward to hear from you.

HOME-START Family contact is an organization where volunteers offer support, friendship and practical help to families with children under school age. The purpose is to prevent crises and breakdowns in families with young children. New family and community patterns create needs in the families for support and new contacts. Families break up, the generations live far apart, and residential areas wither socially. A family friend can make a profit, and build a new network.

Many, even very well-functioning families, occasionally lack the profits that are needed to get their everyday life connected and to prevent and solve problems in time. The opportunity to get that help is in the form of a volunteer family friend.

HOME-START wants to be the family's voice, and help create relationships in society that benefit family life. HOME START supports because young children deserve the best start in life.

HOME-START is for all families with at least one child under the age of 7. The help is free and confidential and the organization is independent of religious, political and economic interests.

Home-Start Family contact Odense was established in 2011, and came to Denmark in 2006. Home-Start was originally started in England in 1973 and has branches in 22 countries worldwide. is Denmark's leading volunteer job portal.

Volunteering is for everyone - we welcome all applicants regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, social background, sexual orientation or religious background.
