Summary

Support the hospice's Distribution Centre in King's Lynn by testing donated electrical items and getting them ready for sale.

Detailed description

Our shops sell a huge range of electrical goods and we get lots of new donations all the time. So we're looking for someone who has a PAT (Portable Appliance Testing) qualification and can carry out appropriate tests on electrical items - making sure they're safe and ready for sale.


The hospice makes a lot of money from the sale of donated items. But we must sure electrical appliances are safe to use and attractive to buyers, so if you've the right qualification and have some time to spare this will help us enormously. You'll need to be able to spend a few hours a week doing this, on a day or days to suit you - preferably Monday to Thursday.

The store has its own PAT testing equipment so you don’t need to bring your own.


What you'll be doing

  • checking appliances are working correctly and meet PAT safe standards
  • accurately recording and labelling tested appliances
  • cleaning and presenting appliances to a high standard, so they're attractive to buyers

The support provided is tailored to the individual, encompassing their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs in an understanding, caring and compassionate way, ensuring dignity is maintained throughout.

The current services cost over £2.5 million per year to run; the NHS funds only 32% of this, with the majority coming from the support of local groups, businesses and individuals.
