Make 2019 your year to start volunteering

Published : 01 Aug 2018 Last update : 19 Jun 2019

It's the skills, time and passion of our volunteers that make National Trust places special. Whether you're looking to help in the great outdoors, connect with the public or get up close and personal with our historic collection, we have something just for you. 

Would you like to help us conserve beautiful places?

At Blickling Estate, we're always looking for new volunteers and with a wide variety of opportunities available, it's a great year to join us. So whether you're a book lover, a gardener, a baker, or you're just looking for a fun new challenge, we'd love to see you.

Why volunteer?

Making new friends, working in amazing places and knowing that you're helping a great cause are three fabulous reasons to get involved in volunteering at Blickling.  You’ll be joining thousands of other National Trust volunteers in caring for the special places we all love, and become part of the incredible team at Blickling Estate who are helping to conserve this beautiful place.

Six ways you could get involved

We'd love to meet you

If you'd like to volunteer or simply some more information, we'd love to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, click here or call 01263 738027. We're open everyday of the week, so why not pop in for a visit, to get a feel for Blickling Estate?

New opportunities

We’re excited that 2019 has seen the start of some new and unique opportunities for volunteers. This year we're all about books, as we celebrate the story of Blickling's impressive, eighteenth century Long Gallery library, which contains over 12,500 volumes. As a result, we have positions in our second-hand bookshop, as well as an exciting new role as a 'Buildings, books and beetles' experience guide.

If books aren't your thing, but you have other interests (such as the great outdoors), then we have just the role for you.  It’s not essential to be a history expert, but you do need to enjoy meeting new people, have a warm and friendly personality and be willing to learn new things.

A passion for fundraising

As a charity, we rely on visits, memberships and donations to continue to protect, conserve and open up special places across the UK for everyone to cherish and enjoy. Therefore fundraising is a key element of volunteering for National Trust, with plenty of exciting opportunities on offer to help you share a passion for history, heritage and natural environments with our visitors.

We want you to learn, discover and develop with us, so at Blickling Estate we’ll do everything we can to offer you the training and support that you need to achieve your goals. We couldn’t do it without you!

For ever, for everyone.
