English Riviera staff and volunteer recruitment fair

What are your New Year's resolutions? Do they involve throwing yourself into new experiences, spending time outdoors or in beautiful surroundings, learning new things or meeting new people? Volunteering or working at the National Trust English Riviera may be just what you're looking for. Why not come along to the annual recruitment fair to find out about the opportunities at Greenway, Coleton Fishacre, Compton Castle and Bradley Manor?

Come to the fair

On Monday 1 February from 2-4pm, the four National Trust places in the English Riviera are hosting a staff and volunteer recruitment fair at the Riviera International Centre in Torquay. The teams from each place will be manning stands where you can find out information about how to get involved in the different areas and chat with the teams.


Volunteering opportunities

There are lots of different ways to get involved as a volunteer. Room guides help to tell the story of each of the places. You don't have to be a history expert to be a Room Guide; it's more about helping visitors to enjoy their day their way, and Room Guides work as a team, so can always ask for help from each other or the house staff. At Greenway transportation volunteers drive the buggy and the quay car to help visitors around the site. At Coleton Fishacre volunteer pianists play on the Bluthner piano, and at Compton Castle volunteer gardeners help to keep the garden in order.
