Volunteer at Gunby Hall and Gardens
We could not operate without our small army of volunteers. We currently have vacancies for buggy drivers, car park assistants, welcome hosts, room guides, garden hosts, second-hand bookshop volunteers and pianists.
Have a look here for more opportunities in your area, other than the ones listed below.
Buggy Driver Volunteers
Buggy driver volunteers provide a shuttle service to and from the car park. The service is mainly aimed at visitors who have difficulty walking the 500 metre drive, but it’s open to everyone. It’s all about making sure our visitors have a great experience when they come to us. You’ll need to hold a driver’s license for this role, all other training will be provided.
Welcoming our visitors with a smile and information about our collection is what room guides do best. Training and induction is provided on the job. The minimum commitment is two three-hour shifts per month. Come and join our lovely team.
Garden Hosts are bursting with helpful info - they know what's in bloom this week and the treasures you find in the next flower bed down, as well as how to get to the tea-room!
Help the visitor service team with greeting visitors in the reception area. At times you will be the first person our visitors meet, so your welcoming smile is very important.
Car Park Assistants
Car park volunteers are the first members of the team that visitors meet on special event days. You'll help visitors have a relaxing visit from beginning to end, by assisting them on some of the busiest days of the year.
Second-hand bookshop volunteer
Do you like a good thriller? Or are you more of a romantic? Our bookshop volunteers know where to find the poetry section or holiday reads and love helping our visitors to find something they'll enjoy.
Volunteer Piano Players
Music helps bring a house to life and live music is the best kind of all. Our fantastic Blüthner grand piano can feel neglected and needs an accomplished pianist to tinkle its ivories and enthrall the visitors.
