Looking for an exciting and interesting way to spend your time? How about volunteering with us?

Whether you’re looking to add to your CV or want to meet lots of like-minded people, volunteering is a great way to expand your horizons. 
 
Time commitment is flexible, so once a week, once a month or ad hoc, we’ll be happy to welcome you into the team.
 

Exciting roles

 
From Castle Hosts and Events Assistants to Musicians and Access Drivers, we’re sure to have a role that will inspire you. 

How about considering one of these exciting roles:
 
  • Castle Host – welcome our visitors and help them discover the amazing stories our castle and collection has to tell.
 
  • History and Treasure Explorer – become an explorer and delve into Powis’ past. Share this information with our visitors by helping to devise an exciting programme of talks and tours.
 
  • Ballroom Musician - Our ballroom used to be a place of music and dance. Whatever instrument you play, come along and help us bring this room to life again.
 
  • Retail Assistant - If you love helping people and seeing customers leave with a smile on their face, then our retail outlets could be the start of an amazing journey for you.
 
  • Access Driver - Help us make sure all our visitors feel welcome and have a great experience. We’re looking for outgoing and friendly volunteer drivers to provide a shuttle service around the property. 
 
We’re always open to suggestions too, so if you’re looking for a specific opportunity, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. 
 

Don’t forget the fun factor either; as a volunteer you will be invited on many trips and social gatherings.
