Join our team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers and help make a real difference to Compton Verney.

Why do we involve Volunteers?
We’re heading into a new phase of our development at Compton Verney. As part of our Heritage Lottery Fund project we are looking towards restoring and re-purposing our ‘Capability’ Brown Landscape and introducing a new programme of activities and events. Using our landscape as a platform we’ll be able to bring together a range of interests for our visitors, such as art, architecture, history and ecology. Volunteer support is vital for us as this support enables us to engage with the public and broaden our range of services.

Why Volunteer at Compton Verney?

As a registered charity, we have limited resources but our ambitions and standards are high. We offer a unique working environment and a variety of roles across the organisation that supports us in achieving our aims. We’re a relatively small but friendly and supportive team, with people from lots of different backgrounds and interests. Many of our volunteer roles involve working with the public, so if you love talking to people and fancy giving us a hand, we’d love to have you on board.

What’s in it for me?

  • We pay travel expenses up to £11 per day
  • Volunteers receive a membership to Compton Verney to support their education and understanding of the organisation, its programme and its audiences, and enable them to carry out their work
  • Staff and volunteer events such as a summer BBQ and Christmas party
  • A chance to meet new people and experience life in a busy visitor attraction
