Join the Team

Our day to day offerings and diverse programming would not be possible without our wonderful team of staff and volunteers.

Our volunteer team is essential to the daily running of the House. By volunteering with us you can meet new people and learn what it’s like to work in a historic house. Our current volunteer vacancies are listed below:
