Provide a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors

Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Basildon Park (National Trust) in RG8

Sitting elegantly in 162 hectares (400 acres) of historic parkland and gardens, Basildon Park is an 18th-century house, purchased by Lord and Lady Iliffe in the 1950s, when it was de-requisitioned after the Second World War.

We are seeking Visitor Enjoyment Volunteers to provide a warm and friendly welcome to our visitors, providing information about the property to ensure enjoyable visits for all.

The role will involve:

  • Proactively identify free car parking spaces and direct visitors to where they can park on arrival.
  • Provide additional car parking assistance where a visitor may need extra help.
  • Using the property radio system, ensure good communications with Visitor Welcome staff and other relevant staff and volunteers.
