We love involving volunteers in the work we do and we want to give opportunities to as wide a range of people as possible. Volunteers bring a wealth of experience and get involved for many different reasons; including a love of heritage and gardens, to gain employability skills, and for social contact. We welcome everyone and hope to be able to support volunteers in their aims as much as they support us in ours.  

We currently involve over 200 volunteers in diverse roles across the charity, from meeting and greeting our visitors, preparing food for our Birds, weeding in our Gardens,  driving our shuttle bus or running our second hand bookshop.   You can see details of all our roles on the link below.

Current volunteer vacancies:

After suspending the recruitment of new volunteers during the pandemic we are excited to announce a new summer Exhibition Ambassador role. 

Based within the All Saint’s Church in the grounds of Harewood you will engage with visitors about the new exhibition by glassblower Chris Day, Harewood and All Saints’ Church.

Chris Day creates work to open conversations around Black history including the Transatlantic Slave Trade and under-representation of makers of diverse heritage in the craft sector.

If this role appeals to you we have a range of morning and afternoon shifts, seven days a week and we will reimburse your travel expenses.
