Barnardos supports children whose well-being is under threat, by working with them, their families and communities. Barnardos was established in Ireland in 1962 and is Ireland’s leading Children’s charity.
Barnardos has 7 shops and one central warehouse which is based in Ballycoolin, Dublin 15. The aim of our network of shops is a community based initiative to sell donated stock (both brand new and pre-loved) to support a circular economy and raise funds which are used to provide services to children and families in Ireland.
Our shops are based in the following locations in Dublin – Dalkey, Dún Laoghaire, Clondalkin, and Kilbarrack. As well as in Carlow, Wexford and Cork City. The Wexford and Dún Laoghaire stores are stockists of bridal-wear which is donated by designers, wholesalers and retailers. Barnardos believes in effective partnerships with a commercial awareness in the retail space working collaboratively to maximise positive outcomes for children and young people. Barnardos retail is also becoming more active in the online space and was recently awarded the Charity shop online presence of the year for 2021 from Charity Retail Ireland.
Barnardos are seeking a dedicated Retail Manager to manage the shop in an efficient manner, building Barnardos relationships including those within the local community while maximizing sales in support of Barnardos’ work with vulnerable children and families.
