We need you

With seven-day opening and a packed events programme Sizergh is on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers to join the 130-strong volunteering team. We're looking for volunteers to help in the modern, airy gift shop which is receiving additional investment. Raffle ticket sellers are also needed – last year volunteers raised over £5,000 to buy winter bulbs for the garden. Staying in the garden, around 15 more garden guides and garden assistants are needed to ensure seven-day opening runs smoothly as well as getting involved in various garden tasks. Meanwhile in the house, the 100-strong contingent of room guides are looking for new volunteers to join them – anyone with an interest in history or who enjoys talking to the public is very welcome. Out on the estate, volunteers are being sought to help with conservation work – from fixing walls and footpaths to managing woodlands. You should have a pleasant, enthusiastic personality, enjoy meeting people and working as part of a team and, for the estate roles, be reasonably fit.
