Recruitment process:

The recruitment process takes around 2 - 3 weeks. Potential volunteers will be invited in for an informal chat to find out more about them and for them to find out more about the role. If this goes well, volunteers would do an induction and start volunteering.

Skills and quaifications:

• Making visitors feel welcome, answering any questions and encouraging them to get involved
• Assisting with the set up/take down of trails and other programming elements throughout the seasons.
• Promoting other ‘reasons to visit’ at Wentworth Castle Gardens now and coming up.
• Gathering feedback and offer suggestions on what worked well or would benefit from a tweak or two based on your experiences and conversations with visitors.
• Being outdoors, engaging visitors with events and activity programmes including trails and seasonal crafts.
• Becoming familiar with and then following the National Trust’s Health and Safety Policy to make sure things run as smoothly and safely as possible.
• Events and Programming is such a varied role that any number of activities could crop up that we could certainly use your help with.
• Hours are not regular, but help is typically needed during the school holidays, half terms and the busy Easter, October and Christmas periods. We also have a number of events and programming opportunities throughout the year when support will be needed.
