If you enjoy meeting new people, are positive and confident and have some time to give, why not consider volunteering at Waddesdon.
We’re looking for Volunteers to join our team – helping to ensure Waddesdon provides a memorable and friendly experience for all our visitors. Whether you can spare a few hours a week or a month, we would love to hear from you.
Aviary volunteers contribute to the care of endangered bird species through feeding, cleaning, habitat maintenance and project work. An interest in wildlife, reliability and a willingness to engage with conservation aims through varied tasks will be assets in this role.
We are looking for volunteers on Mondays from 8am-12pm.
We are looking for people to help run our self-led summer sport activities from 24 July to 30 August. These include a table tennis table, football nets and tennis! You will be handing out equipment, engaging with visitors and encouraging donations.
We are particularly looking for people for 2 days a week – on Weds and Thurs – but any extra days would be very welcome.
If you have spare time on the weekend, or wish to enhance your work experience with something different, then join us in welcoming visitors and ensuring they enjoy the House and Collection. The role requires approachability, excellent timekeeping, dedication to offering a great visitor experience through friendly and well-informed communication and good teamwork. Full training and materials will be provided.
Days required: Saturday or Sunday, ideally weekly or fortnightly
Our dedicated Conservation Raffle Ticket Sellers approach visitors in a courteous and friendly way to sell raffle tickets which raises money for both the National Trust and Waddesdon.
