Volunteer with us

Our team has a really important task, to take care of this amazing place and to bring it to life for our visitors. Volunteering your time to help with this work is a great way to get involved, learn new skills and share existing ones while meeting other like-minded people.

Current volunteer opportunities

We have some exciting volunteer opportunities at Petworth House at the moment including coffee shop assistants, visitor experience volunteers and tour guides. If you are interested please contact us.
