(comparison) shop’, letting us know what other card and gift retailers are doing well • Giving valuable feedback to our Area and Regional Managers on what you’ve done in the store, and we can let you know how well it worked! What’s in it for me? • Gain hands-on experience of working within a friendly charity sector team • The opportunity to use your creative skills to make a real difference • A chance to build on your VM portfolio • The opportunity to enhance your CV • Help support charities you care about.
