Volunteering with Landmark

We welcome committed volunteers to help with any aspect of our work. Regular volunteering and occasional internships will be based at our Shottesbrooke office in Berkshire. There are occasional volunteer possibilities based locally around an individual Landmark or event and in such cases we will post them here.

 

If you are interested in registering as a volunteer, please download a volunteer registration form, fill it in and post it back to us or return it as a signed document by email to volunteers@landmarktrust.org.uk

 

Lundy also has its own volunteer programme assisting with the island’s ongoing conservation management or helping with the day to day running. Find out more by contacting warden@lundyisland.co.uk.

Current volunteering opportunities

We are currently seeking help with the following tasks:

PLEASE NOTE: Even if you have already registered with us to volunteer,  you still need to apply for volunteer vacancies as they appear if you are interested. (We are a small team and cannot follow up with indivduals about specific openings). If you have signed up for the monthly Volunteer Email  this will alert you to any new volunteer postitions posted on the website. Thank you.

 


 

Share your talents with us!

While our buildings speak for themselves, we love enriching our Open Days with additional activities – storytelling, music, dance, Living History, artworks, craft demonstrations….. If you have a talent you’d be willing to volunteer for an Open Day or belong to a group who would join in, please let us know via volunteers@landmarktrust.org.uk.

 




Current work experience opportunities

for volunteers at our Head Office.


Please note that we can only offer to cover modest travel expenses. This means you will need to live near our Head Office near Maidenhead, and be able to make your own way there on a regular basis (our offices are in a lovely estate setting but there is no public transport to the site). Many, though not all, of these opportunities will suit those seeking experience in the heritage sector, especially students. We hope you will be able to offer us your commitment for the period of time agreed between us.

Please apply for specific opportunities rather than ‘any’, and note that all available offers are listed below.

To apply, in all cases please send your CV with a brief covering email explaining your interest through the links below.

 

Development Team
Full time help needed for a few weeks in August across various administrative tasks, including background research on prospective funders, support for mailings, and events. This will provide a taste of fundraising in the heritage sector and exposure to CRM systems. Good computer and personal skills required. 

Closing date for expressions of interest: 21st April 2014

History
We are keen to bring all our history albums up to scratch in time for our 50th anniversary in 2015. Working with Landmark’s Historian, we are looking for one or more helpers to:
1.     Help reformat and re-present early albums.
2.    Research and write albums for the few outstanding Landmarks that lack them. This is a task that can be carried out largely remotely, but you will need reader access to a copyright library and some familiarity with research skills.
These tasks will be best suited to recent history graduates or undergraduates, and suit those interested in learning or honing the skills needed to research and record historic buildings.

Historic Estate Team
Working at the hub of Landmark’s conservation team, we need help with a number of specific office-based administrative tasks at any time within the next six months for a period of 4-6 weeks:
1) 1) The compilation of information on maintenance and servicing from existing sources to be placed in Landmarks, and also the updating of local information at our Landmarks.   Although office-based at our head-quarters, this would suit someone interested in gaining experience in methodical office procedures while working on an interesting portfolio of buildings across the country.
  (2)   The Landmark Archive—the ordering, editing, curation and indexing of our paper store of information on physical works to Landmarks for the last fifty years.  This task would suit a retired professional or trainee archivist.

On-Site at Belmont, Lyme Regis
We need help from a few people to clean the many layers of paint from internal cornices at Mrs Coade’s 18th-century villa, Belmont, where we are currently on-site. This will be a painstaking and time-consuming task but will make a real difference to the presentation of the drawing room. You will need to live in Lyme Regis. This is an opportunity to gain experience on-site, as part of a friendly and multi-skilled conservation team, from May 2014.
