The Emmetts Garden volunteer team operate like a family living at the property. They welcome the visitors, care for the garden, and carry out essential work to keep the property running. We simply couldn’t open without them. We’re always looking for new members to join our team. We’re not looking for experts, just people with a passion for Emmetts Garden and who enjoy interacting with the public. If you’re interested, please complete and return our volunteer registration form.
There's nothing like a fun day out and we are looking for Events Assistants to help make them happen. If you like to meet people and enjoy working with families, have a cheerful and positive outlook even when the weather's against you and you're willing to get stuck in then you'll be instrumental in taking an event from beginning to end and helping visitors enjoy their experience.
Programming and Development internship
Our Programming and Development internship is a chance to take events from start to finish whilst promoting these events on our property websites, through social media and through National Trust posters. You'll get an understanding of the work of the National Trust, improve your leadership and communication skills as you work with volunteers and staff.
Drive in style
Like a good drive or see yourself as a chauffeur then you'll want to look at our buggy driving role. Emmetts is a hillside garden so why not be the friendly face that escorts those less able from the visitor reception to the café. You'll also have a hand in giving directions and sharing some of your own stories
Become an historic researcher
If you like to root down details and uncover new information then this is the role for you. Volunteer as part of a team researching archives and historic records to bring to life some of the exciting stories at Emmetts.
Visitor welcome volunteer
If you are the sort of person that likes to make everybody feel welcome then you should think about volunteering with Emmetts Garden. Enjoy a varied day signing up members, answering questions and supporting in reception all the while using your communication skills to make sure everyone has a great visit.
