Volunteers are an essential part of the ORNC team, working with all departments in both front-of-house and office-based roles. Volunteering there is a great way to learn news skills, gain new experiences and learn more about the fascinating site.

- Welcome and assist visitors
- Lead tours showcasing the history of the Old Royal Naval College
- Fund-raise to support the conservation programme
- Assist the learning and interpretation team
- Provide behind-the-scenes office support

Full induction and training is provided and you will be given support whenever you need it.

 An introduction to the history of the Old Royal Naval College
- How to give effective talks and handling sessions
- How to ask for donations
- How to assist young learners and families
- There are also plenty of opportunities to meet other volunteers and staff members at social events.
- Commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults means all roles are subject to references and some may require an enhanced DBS check
