Volunteers sought for Brockhole

Published on: 04 Mar 2015

Lake District lovers are being urged to come forward and share their passion for the national park with visitors at Brockhole as it seeks to expand its pool of dedicated ‘ambassadors’.

Nestled on the shore of Windermere, Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Centre, marks the start of a Lake District adventure for over 200,000 visitors and locals every year. The role of ambassador is to meet and greet visitors on arrival, offer information to help them make the most out of their visit and hopefully improve their overall visitor experience.

Commercial assistant, Lorraine Brierley, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people who love the Lake District to share their enthusiasm, knowledge and help showcase the area in its best light. We are looking for people who are positive, outgoing, reliable and self-motivated, who are willing to support staff in a range of different tasks, to help deliver a world class visitor experience. This voluntary role is heavily customer focused so it is important that you are comfortable approaching and talking to visitors, and offering them advice and information.”

Anyone interested in the opportunity can attend an informal open day at Brockhole on Saturday 14 March and Tuesday 17 March to find out more, visit the site and enjoy a free cream tea!
