Volunteer at Tyntesfield

Making new friends, working in an amazing place and knowing that you're helping a great cause - three fabulous reasons to get volunteering.

With one of the largest volunteer teams in the National Trust, Tyntesfield is a unique place to get involved.

Our volunteers help with everything from gardening to catering, and from  house tours to conserving the collection...

Some of our current roles

We're looking for drivers who can commit to a four hour shift, once a week. The bus runs seven days a week and helps people get around the 540 acre estate, and helps us reach our goal of keeping places special forever for everyone.

" I love this quirky and enchanting place and not just the House; the grounds, the woodland and the general lie of the land all provide a perfect backdrop to the House. Enthusing our visitors with a similar feeling is very rewarding, so I try to talk about Tyntesfield and its people with humour, hopefully bringing smiles to their faces. "
- Dave Chillistone, Room Interpreter

What happens next?

Once you've applied for a role that you like to sound of, we'll invite you in for an informal interview to meet members of the relevant team. This is a chance to tell us why you’d like to be involved and find out the details of what volunteering at Tyntesfield looks like. 

If your interview is successful you'll be invited to start volunteering with the team. For your role specific induction you will shadow experienced volunteers to build your knowledge and confidence in the role. 

All new staff and volunteers are invited to attend one of our monthly ‘Welcome Days’ to give you the information you need to get off to a great start.
