It is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with Natural England, the Environment Agency and Forestry Commission.

About You.

With your endless passion for our work, you’ll help with the protection and care of habitats, wildlife, property and machinery, and your passion will inspire others to love the beautiful places as much as you do. We want you to engage with visitors, making time to talk to them, not rushing away to the next task.

So whether you’re delivering volunteer work parties on project sites, assisting with guided visitor walks, or overseeing contractors, no two days will be the same. This role will see you responding to queries and explaining the value of the work being undertaken. After all, your passion and dedication could fire the imagination that makes a visitor become a member for the rest of their life
