Volunteering can be a really rewarding experience. Not only do you meet new people, make new friends and gain new skills, but you also help look after some of the countries most important buildings and countryside. Here on the Island we have a team of volunteers that play a crucial role in helping us protect our places. They get involved with all in sorts of tasks, from clearing footpaths, to aiding in the Estate Office, and welcoming visitors to our properties. But we would always love more people to join us. So if you fancy doing something a little different with your spare time, then please take a look below at some of our current opportunities to get involved and make a difference.

" Bembridge Fort is a fascinating place. There's military and local history but it's also a wonderful location for nature and wildlife as well."

Visitor experience and welcome volunteer at the Needles

Located at the western most tip of the Isle of Wight, the Needles Battery has been a Victorian coastal defence and secret rocket testing site. Now we need people to welcome visitors rather than keep them at bay. Working in visitor reception we'd need you to share information about the site and let them know about any events that are happening, as well as the best things to see and do.
