Join the Sutton Hoo team

Burial Mound tour at Sutton Hoo

From welcoming visitors to looking after our second-hand bookshop or getting your hands dirty with our landscape conservation team, volunteer with us and become a part of the Sutton Hoo story.

Our volunteers bring the story of Sutton Hoo to life for our visitors, whatever their reasons for visiting. But it's about you too, join our team and you'll also be making new friends, developing new skills and contributing to an amazing cause.

Whatever your interests and passions are, we have a role for you.

New Opportunities

As Sutton Hoo begins a new chapter it its story,  we also have new volunteering opportunities on offer, offering unique ways to get involved at this special place. 

Whether you have years of experience or want the thrill of learning a brand new skill, everyone is welcome in our specialised volunteering roles.

If volunteering appeals to you, we'd love to hear from you!

You can either email Sally Metcalf for more details or fill in our online application form found here: Sutton Hoo Volunteering Opportunities.

" It’s as though the planets align and I simply find myself in the right place – physically, spiritually or otherwise. Don’t know if that’s downright soppy, but that’s how Sutton Hoo gets me."
