Looking for a job?

Visit the National Trust jobsite for full details of all current vacancies and to apply. The website is updated daily so it's worth looking regularly as any jobs will be added here throughout the year.

Don't forget to see what opportunities there are available at Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens and Goddards House and Garden.

How can I 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.

Popular roles include:

Gardener

Working as part of a team, volunteer gardeners help with the upkeep and development of the garden at Treasurer’s House so that it can be enjoyed by all visitors.
 

Room guide - we are especially looking for help on Sundays

Our room guides provide a welcoming presence for visitors, helping to bring Treasurer's House to life while playing a valuable part in safeguarding our collections.
 

Office Support & Marketing

If research or admin is more to your skill-set then we welcome your talents to work alongside the small staff team. There are various marketing roles you can get involved with such as website editing and keeping the social media channels up to date. Full training will be provided and these roles offer great CV building opportunities.

Retail assistant
