Growing volunteers at Brockhole

Published on: 26 May 2015

After running two successful open days in March, Brockhole is looking to continue the expansion of its pool of dedicated volunteers whose role is to improve the visitor experience and support the centre’s extensive events programme.

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. Volunteers support staff by meeting and greeting visitors on arrival and offering information to help them find their way around the 30 acres of grounds and gardens.

Commercial assistant, Lorraine Brierley, said: “With the summer season less than two months away, we are looking for positive, outgoing, reliable, self-motivated individuals who are willing to support staff in a range of different tasks, to help visitors make the most of their visit. This role is heavily customer focused so it is important that you are comfortable approaching and talking to visitors, acting as “Ambassadors” for the site, offering information and therefore enriching a visitor’s day out”.

Anyone interested in the opportunity can attend an informal open day at Brockhole on Saturday 30 May and Wednesday 3 June to find out more, visit the site and enjoy a free sandwich lunch!
