The National Trust is looking for volunteers to help look after Belton House.

The conservation charity is looking for volunteers to help with the day-to-day running and care of the house. There are lots of ways to get involved, and they have positions in all areas, both front and back of house, to suit all skills and interests.

Belton House is holding a recruitment open day and is inviting anybody interested in volunteering to go to Belton Old School Village Hall (NG32 2LW), on Saturday (July 8) between 11am and 2pm.

Siobhan Scullion, Visitor Experience Manager at Belton House, said: “We see volunteers from all walks of life. And there’s much more flexibility to volunteering than you might think, whatever time you can give you’ll be making a real difference.

“As a charity, we rely on volunteers to help us look after special places like Belton. We simply wouldn’t be able to carry out the work that we do or make every visit special without volunteer support, and over the busy summer months we need a few extra pairs of hands. If anyone’s considering volunteering, you can find out more and see what opportunities there are by coming along to the open day or by visiting our website. We’d love to hear from you.

“In addition to working in beautiful surroundings, volunteering with the National Trust provides the opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends, and play a part in helping care for Belton House.

“So if you’re looking for a new challenge, to enhance your CV or simply make use of your current skills, why not drop-in to the open day, meet the team and find out more?”
