Our social enterprise Restart Orkney sells good quality second hand furniture, household items and white goods at affordable prices. All profits made from shop sales go back into helping our local community. Restart Orkney also helps to protect our beautiful environment as many of the items donated to us would have otherwise ended up being incinerated.


If you would like any further information or would like to donate please feel free to contact us on (01856) 879 777 or visit or showroom at 62 Junction Road, Kirkwall.


Thank you to all our customers for continuing to support us through these difficult times.


Relief Van Driver

£10 per hour

Monday to Friday, 9am - 4pm to cover holidays and sickness.

Our valuable service could not run effectively without the help of our relief van drivers covering busy periods, holidays, sickness etc. It is a paid position (£10 per hour) there is some heavy lifting involved but is a hugely rewarding job.


If you have a spare bit of time and would like to join our friendly team and help out a small local charity, give our acting service manager Ian Robertson a ring on 876 605 or email reception@employabilityorkney.co.uk for more information.
