Volunteering at Dyrham Park

Dyrham Park relies on a brilliant team of more than 200 volunteers and we're always keen to hear from more people willing to help.

Volunteering at Dyrham Park is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and play your part in helping to safeguard the future of this historic house, deer park and garden.

From helping visitors to working with wildlife and caring for the collection, there are a range of roles to suit all interests.

We're currently particularly on the lookout for:

House volunteers

The house is in a state of transformation following a major conservation project to replace the leaking roof. We're currently exploring how best ot share the story of Dyrham Park and are keen to hear from anyone interested in helping us to do this - we've got vacancies for general house volunteers and guides. We're particularly interested in people with storytelling skills.

Weekend car park assistants

Dyrham Park can get busy on weekends and with limited parking spaces, we rely on volunteers to help welcome visitors and ensure they're parked properly to make the most use of the space available. If you like people and working outdoors, this could be the role for you. This is a flexible role, with ad hoc opportunities during our busier times - weekends during school holidays and Bank Holidays.

Events assistants

Our visitor experience team puts on a range of events throughout the year, with a full programme of children's activities during the school holidays, from arts and crafts to nature walks and trails as well as 50 things fun. We're always keen to hear from people interested in helping out with these. This is a flexible role which does not require a weekly regular commitment - perfect for students looking for something to fit in around their studies.
