By getting involved, you could:
– Have fun and help visitors enjoy themselves, in the Rock Houses and the countryside of the Edge
– Get experience of working on some of the best events around
– Dress up in costume – but it’s not compulsory!
– Help turn a field into a festival and back again in one day
– Join an enthusiastic and varied team and make some new friends
– Helping to plan events so that they tell the story of our place and bring the history and nature to life
-Practical help with signage, marking out spaces for exhibitors, moving tables, putting up gazebos and so on.
– Preparing and leading creative workshops such as children’s craft and nature activities when needed
– Making visitors feel welcome, answering any questions and encouraging them to get involved
– Promoting other events at Kinver Edge and at other National Trust places locally.
– Asking visitors to tell us about their day, so we can improve future events
– You are important in making sure things run as smoothly and safely as possible – this includes getting to know health and safety and evacuation procedures
– There might occasionally be some other activities that are of interest to you, that we could use your help with.
This role will suit you if you are:
– Someone who loves meeting people and enjoys working with families
– Cheerful and positive, even when the weather’s not on your side
– Willing to get stuck in with anything on a busy day
– Reasonably fit – you don’t need to be Geoff Capes, but you could be on your feet all day
– Keen to help, but unable to commit to regular volunteering throughout the year
– We’ll help you get to know Kinver Edge how you can help and how you will work with the rest of the team – with induction and training
– We provide equipment to help you do this role well and safely
– We’ll also cover agreed costs of your travel between home and the Edge
