We are looking for more volunteers to join our team and get involved and inspired by Waddesdon. You’ll have the opportunity to work in a magnificent setting and contribute your time to help and support our heritage property. Volunteering can also be a great experience to kickstart your career.
At our Open Day you’ll have the chance to enjoy a Behind the Scenes tour of the House or explore the gardens on a guided tour. Chat with our friendly staff and volunteers about what it’s like to volunteer. Learn more about the benefits of volunteering at Waddesdon.
There are plenty of different opportunities within the House, Visitor Services, Learning and Gardens teams as well as at big events in the year, such as Summer Fest, Chilli Fest and Halloween.
Please also note that the minimum age for volunteering at Waddesdon is 16.

Help to the keep the grounds and gardens breathtaking and immaculate. Supervised by a skilled member of the gardens team you could find yourself pruning, bedding, working in the glasshouse, hedging or even using light machinery. What a great place to be in if you love gardening.
We’re looking for volunteers, particularly at weekends, to help make the House and Collections come alive for visitors. You could be answering questions on items in the collection. Don’t panic, you’ll be fully trained first.
Our small Education team really value the help received from volunteers. Join them putting on fun and informative events for our younger visitors throughout the season. From helping children with trails to explaining how families can best enjoy their visit.
Help out with our major event programme throughout the year, from family activities to our popular special events. You could be working at Summer Fest or Christmas, making sure visitors get the most out of their experience.
This new volunteering role has been developed to ensure that our visitors get as much out of their day as possible, by providing directional information and a friendly face to answer questions. Grounds Champions will also help to keep the grounds of Waddesdon looking immaculate and presentable for our visitors. This post could also involve selling raffle tickets and helping to raise income for Waddesdon.
