Join the Treasurer's House team
Treasurer’s House has a team of over 300 volunteers to ensure that visitors make the most of their visit. If you want to make new friends, develop new skills and support the charity - we can provide everything you need to get started.
Ways to get involved by volunteering
Many roles involve welcoming visitors and bringing the stories of the house to life for children, local people and overseas visitors alike. The house is now opening for 7 days a week in the main season so we have quite a few opportunities to join the expanding team. There are also several behind the scenes roles supporting the office with general administration or marketing work, getting hands on in the garden or as part of the conservation teams or researching the history of the house.
In return we can offer training, 20% discount in the shops and cafes & a free entry card, once you have volunteered for 50 hours.
