Great place to work
RETAIL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Stockport31 March 2016
All National Trust properties are different and this means no working department is the same as they NT utilise the available rooms, buildings and outhouses for department uses. Unique and special with the benefit of seeing wildlife each day. The volunteers are relied on a great deal to support departments and help maintain, renovate and greet visitors.
Pros
Unique place to work. Great National charity.
Cons
Seasonal job. little possibility of promotion within the retail dpt as so small.
