Sefton Park Palm House on the hunt for new volunteers to work at iconic venue
Sefton Park Palm House is on the lookout for new volunteers to join its successful volunteers programme, as the Grade II* listed building gears up for a busy summer.
With 25 people already volunteering at the Palm House, aspiring new volunteers will have the opportunity to take part in a number of roles; with guided tours and introductory talks just two of the tasks involved with being a Palm House Steward.
Looking to attract friendly, energetic and enthusiastic individuals, the Palm House has welcomed a diverse range of volunteers over the years, from students looking to enhance their CVs, to professionals in need of time banking opportunities, and the retired with life experiences to share.
Playing a valuable role in enabling visitors to the Palm House enjoy their visit, volunteers will also have the chance to become part of a dedicated team, meet new friends, as well as enjoying new experiences, in the process learning new skills.
Kate Martinez, visitor experience manager of Sefton Park Palm House, said:
“We pride ourselves on the famous welcome that we give to our visitors at Sefton Park Palm House, and our volunteers play a huge role in that, as they are the first faces that people meet when they walk through our doors.
“Palm House stewards have an important part to play in ensuring that our visitor experience continues to stay exemplary. Our stewards will have the opportunity to learn new skills as well as making new friends and gaining experiences that will stay with them for a very long time.”
With volunteers required from 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm seven days a week, Palm House Stewards will also receive an induction before their role begins, as well as suitable in-house training from Kate and the Palm House team.
