Tools with a Mission


At our Ipswich Head Office, we have a number of office based opportunities available. These range from general office tasks such as dealing with requests and donations by phone, post, email and face to face to assisting with accounts and Gift Aid returns, helping with Shipping logistics and volunteer recruitment.

These are wide ranging depending on the specific role selected but may include

  • Answering the Phone and dealing with queries from TWAM collectors and members

of the public.

  • Populating Spreadsheets with details of Shipments
  • Responding to letters and emails received
  • Processing Donations on our Salesforce CRM Database
  • Assisting with Accounts and Gift Aid Returns
  • Sending out application forms and requesting references for prospective volunteers
  • Sending 'thank you’ letters to the many people who donate to TWAM.

A friendly personality and able to work well as part of a team. You need to be computer literate and if you are familiar with Microsoft Office, that will be helpful, but you won’t need to be an expert on all the systems we use as training will be provided. You do need to be organised and enjoy a role where every volunteer shift may be different. An eye for detail and being able to produce accurate work is important. If you have previous customer service skills and are used to speaking to people on the phone, that’s a bonus! You also need to be good with spreadsheets if you are looking for an accounts or logistics role and accounts roles will also require a high level of numeracy and ideally previous experience. Finally, due to the nature of these roles, you need to be able to respect confidentiality

More information on the role can be found on our dedicated volunteer recruitment website www.timefortwam.uk

Mission Statement

We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment. As a Christian Charity, we believe that God's heart reaches out to the poor and that He calls us to follow His example. Our motivation is to work with faith and non-faith based organisations to be a refuge for the poor, a safe place to find support, hope and dignity through the provision of tools and equipment


The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith



We'll work with your schedule.
