Emmaus Brighton & Hove has recently opened an exciting new clothing store named Outfit in its former chapel and is now looking to recruit a part time retail assistant to work alongside a full time manager, Companions and volunteers. This business becomes the 7th of the social enterprises run by staff, Companions and volunteers at Emmaus Brighton & Hove.

Outfit @emmaus is way more than a secondhand clothing store.

Not to mention a unique new personal styling and shopping service.
