Our volunteer roles

Do you enjoy working outdoors in all kinds of weather? You can help us to provide the all-important first point of contact for our visitors and help them get where they need to go.
Our reception volunteers meet and greet our visitors. You'll provide information about the house and park, details of what's on, give directions and suggest ideas for things that visitors can see and do.
Help us to improve and maintain the park and gardens at Hatchlands. Everything from pruning and planting in formal gardens through to mowing and hedge trimming in the wider park.
Lend a hand alongside staff in our courtyard shop, providing great service and product advice to our visitors. You'll also need to know general information about the house and park.
