Head to Stroud Subscription Rooms on Saturday March 4 from 10am to see how you can get involved with the National Trust Cotswolds

The National Trust Cotswolds are holding a Volunteer Recruitment Day Saturday March 4 10am to 3pm at the George Room, Stroud Subscription Rooms, George Street, Stroud GL5 1AE.

Volunteer Recruitment Day is a great chance to meet the teams and for information about volunteering for the National Trust in Gloucestershire. On the day, rangers and Carol Denn (the Visitor Experience Manager for the Cotswolds and Volunteer Lead) will be available for an informal chat to talk about the many opportunities available with the National Trust. They include working with Galloway cattle, gardening, events, website, social media, nature conservation, social dog walkers, engagement officers and even helping in the Trust’s offices.

To see the all the National Trust volunteer roles (18 and counting!) advertised on our website please search Gloucestershire, United Kingdom: https://myvolunteering.nationaltrust.org.uk/opportunity-search.

‘If you’re interested, don’t worry about what role you may or may not be able to do. Once we understand what your interests and skills are, and how much time you have to offer, we can find a role to suit you’ says Carol.

She added: ‘Our volunteers are so important to us. A volunteer with the National Trust will not only be part of a friendly team, but will get the chance to work alongside some real professionals and pick up all sorts of knowledge from them. Many find that the practical skills learnt are of use in future careers and day to day lives. There are other perks too, like social events, discounts in the shop and restaurants and free entry to National Trust places around the UK’.

More roles to come as the year goes on. For further information on this Volunteer Recruitment Day or volunteering generally in the Cotswolds please contact Carol at the Ebworth estate office on 01452 810 640, carol.denn@nationaltrust.org.uk.
