Why volunteer with us?
We are looking for looking for lively, positive volunteers to join our award winning team

We asked our volunteers why they recommend volunteering with us and this is what they said:

Inspiring Others

"I have visited numerous attractions around the world. Where I have encountered volunteers I found their enthusiasm contagious and left smiling and well informed. I want to make people feel that way."

Improving your CV

"Volunteering is a key way to get some experience on my CV. It lets me gain experience in a variety of roles and there is always something engaging and interesting for me to do and learn"

Increasing your confidence

"The top thing that I have gained from volunteering is confidence. The journey was a bit rocky but I've gone from a shy volunteer who didn't want to be left on their own to talk to people to a confident volunteer willing to take on additional roles."

Broadening your horizons

"I've recently left my career of 26 years and was undecided about what to do next.  Volunteering is a great way to explore options and broaden my horizons."

Making Friends

"I've met so many interesting and interested visitors and made new friends that I would never have met if it wasn't for volunteering at the castle."

Having Fun

"Volunteering at the castle is always very exciting and it has a great atmosphere"

Learning Something New

"I'm interested in history and have learnt so much more since I started here."

Supporting your Local Area

"I wanted to support this wonderful heritage site by providing an enthusiastic and friendly welcome to visitors"

Staying Young at Heart

"Volunteering alongside younger people keeps us young – give it a go you've got nothing to lose and lots to gain."
