Volunteer and visitors talking at a garden party

Be special, help us

The National Trust is a charity that looks after special places for ever for everyone. We need volunteers to bring our places to life for the many people that visit.

Tucked away on the outskirts of Wolverhampton, Wightwick Manor is a beautiful house and garden with gift shop, tea-room. Volunteers are vital to ensure these places are well cared for and that people are able to enjoy them.

Why volunteer at Wightwick?

Why get involved?

Most of our volunteer roles are visitor-facing; welcoming people to our places and making sure they have a good time:

  • be part of a team
  • make friends for life
  • share skills, gain new ones
  • improve your job prospects
  • bring stories to life
  • above all, have fun

Am I suitable?

You don't need any qualifications or specific experience, you just need to be friendly and enjoy meeting all kinds of people. Training is provided and you’ll have a buddy to help you find your feet. You won’t be out of pocket either, as travel expenses are covered.
