The Christian Drama Resource Centre lends costumes, props & scripts to churches, schools and community groups. We have been a registered charity for 20 years and wish to promote the Dramatic Arts and use our resources in the wider community. We've helped hundreds of schools, churches and communities providing costumes and props. Because when you look the part, you feel the part.
As an Inventory Volunteer the key responsibility would be managing our stock, particularly preparing our orders and putting them away once they've been returned. This further includes fetching and returning orders from the office to the store and putting away our costumes back into their designated place.
Upkeep of our costumes is particularly important to us; therefore somebody who is willing to wash and iron the pieces, as well as alert our Sewing Team to any damaged outfits that may need repairing would be greatly appreciated.
The responsibility of managing our stock would also extend to helping to decide which costumes we are lacking and what we need to buy more of, as well as which items that are donated to us are worth keeping, and whether it's worth replacing with any other stock.
Finally, the role of an Inventory Volunteer would include finding orders that have not been returned on time, as well as pursuing items that have been lost or are missing from a particular order.
We'd love somebody who's a fast learner and with knowledge of periods throughout history and their relevant costumes, however, training can be given on this subject.
