Become part of the Quarry Bank team

Our volunteers not only allow us to open Quarry Bank but also to share the history and stories of this fascinating place.

This year will be incredibly exciting for us thanks to the work of the Quarry Bank Project and over the next few months we will be recruiting for roles to support us across all our departments, including Heritage, Learning, Visitor Experience and the Estate.

Whatever your interests or skills, we would love to hear from you.

Volunteering at Quarry Bank is a fascinating and rewarding experience where you can indulge your interest in history and heritage and help to make visitors’ experiences even more exciting.
