About

Do you love putting things in their rightful place? Do you drool over DIY tile projects on Pintrest? You might just be the perfect person to help keep our ReStore’s tile section clean and retail friendly. The Beaverton Habitat for Humanity ReStore is looking for a volunteer with a flair for organization to help us keep up with the high volume of tile our store receives.

Mission:

Our ReStores raise funds to help Habitat for Humanity build affordable homes in the Portland Metro area. We keep usable materials out of the waste stream by selling donated new and used building materials and home furnishings for a fraction of retail price.

Supervision and Support Plan:

This position requires a ReStore orientation and training by a staff member. This will take place on site during a scheduled shift. Tile Specialists will report directly to the Assistant Manager of the store, and additional support will be provided by the Store Manager as needed. Tile Specialists will be expected to volunteer in the store for two weeks before assuming the role, so as to orient them thoroughly to the ins and outs of our operation.
