York's Treasure House Looks For New People
7:44am 10th January 2014
Today and tomorrow (Friday 10th and Saturday 11th January) the National Trust’s Treasurer’s House will once again be seeking a variety of skills and talents for both voluntary and paid work opportunities this year.
Lisa Holden, Visitor Services Manager said
“As we prepare for 2014, we will be looking for more volunteers and paid roles to support across all areas of the house. You don’t need to be a history buff to help out.
As well as the key role of room guides, who help bring the house to life by telling the fascinating stories of the house face to face, we are also looking for volunteers to support with our social media, website and photography, allowing us to capture our history here in increasingly diverse ways for our visitors to enjoy. In return volunteering with us can offer people the chance to develop or learn new skills, give something extra to their social life or simply enjoy spending a few hours a week in a fantastic setting.”
The recruitment open days will be held at Treasurer’s House 11.30am – 2.00pm. Giving people of all ages and experience an opportunity to chat to staff and volunteers about what it is like to work at this historic house and garden.
The National Trust say whatever role you adopt as a volunteer, training is provided and a regular social calendar provides opportunities for getting involved in a variety of things and meeting others. Paid work includes jobs in catering, guiding, sales, visitor services, weddings and events.
For those unable to attend the open day, contact Treasurer’s House, 01904 624247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to get an application form.
