A very positive, supportive and friendly workplace.
National Trust Volunteer (Current Employee) – ENG – 19 October 2015
National Trust staff briefing to begin each day
Then each volunteer is tasked to guide and welcome visitors to Montacute House.
My co-workers are retired lawyers, doctors, military officers, businessmen and women.
Visitor and staff contact, answering questions, customer service, public safety.
The most enjoyable part of the job is contact with staff, volunteers and visitors to the National Trust Property at Montacute House.
Another aspect of Volunteering for National Trust I hope to develop is a 'talking heads' role lecturing to visitor groups about chosen National Portrait Gallery Tudor and Jacobean Portraits on display at Montacute House. I have been invited, along with others, to undertake this role next season, following peer review and training by staff from the National Portrait Gallery, London
Invaluable life and professional experience
Restricted to the summer season (April to October)
