You will play an important part in delivering a wide variety of events and supporting the exhibitions at Westbury Manor. As an Event Volunteer you will work with the Visitor Services Assistants and Manager to market and run an interesting and exciting event programme and support the programme of local temporary exhibitions.
Our aim is to supplement the normal visitor offer at Westbury with an engaging range of events, exhibitions and activities designed for children, families and adults. Comprehensive training in customer service and event specific will be given. Daily supervision by the Visitor Services Assistant and tasks established by the Manager. In-depth induction to all venue H&S and operational procedures plus on-going support and refresher sessions.
You’ll be part of a friendly and dedicated team with the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and pass on your own experience. Most importantly, you’ll be playing a part in keeping this very special site open. Volunteers receive a Culture Card which entitles them to free entry to paid HCT venues and a 10% discount in all HCT cafes and shops.
