Interesting and challenging roles in a unique working environment
Our aim is to help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
Volunteers provide us with an immeasurable amount of support in achieving this aim, in so many ways, from sharing stories with visitors to helping out behind the scenes.
We believe our volunteers provide an important and invaluable link between the historic buildings in our care, our visitors, and the local community.
Volunteers complement and support the work of our staff, developing new talents for themselves. This enables us to further enrich and enhance the visitor experience and to undertake projects that we would not normally be able to carry out.
Volunteering gives you the opportunity to discover more about our palaces, meet new friends, see behind the scenes, and develop your interpersonal skills by engaging with visitors from all over the world.
Whatever your interests, volunteering can expand your horizons, open up new possibilities and uncover hidden interests and talents.
All our volunteers are required to have security clearance and must therefore be over 18 years old.
If you are under 18, you may wish to take a look at our internship, apprenticeship and work experience opportunities.
