Would you like to spend some of your spare time learning, meeting people, and being part of a team? Whatever your skill set, Springhill has plenty of opportunities for volunteering and we're always on the lookout for new additions to the team.

Volunteer opportunities

Volunteers at Springhill are involved in all aspects of the place, from being outdoors looking after the estate and working in the gardens to helping indoors, taking part in conservation projects and administration.

Lots of volunteers are involved in visitor-facing roles as meeter-greeters, tour guides, and in the second-hand bookshop. Volunteers are also heavily involved in our programme of events throughout the year - previous roles have included everything from face painting to flower arranging.

Family volunteering experience

Springhill offers the perfect place for people to get involved as a family. We have some family volunteering experiences planned for the autumn months.
