Working at National Trust

What we do

We all have a place we love. A place that inspires us. A place with its own unique and particular atmosphere.The National Trust was created to help people make the most of these very special places - and the good things that come from them.

We're independent of Government and receive no direct grant or subsidy for our core work. Instead, our future depends on the active support and generosity of 5.4 million members, 22 million visitors, 60,000 volunteers and over 11,000 people who work with us (plus thousands who help us seasonally), as well as benefactors, tenants and other partners.

Today, we're Europe's largest conservation organisation, with huge - and incredibly varied - responsibilities. We protect and welcome everyone to explore and enjoy some 709 miles of coastline, 250,000 hectares of land of outstanding natural beauty, 104 nature reserves, 6 World Heritage Sites and much, much more besides. We want every one of our visitors to enjoy these amazing places and have an experience they'll never forget. We want them to try something they've never tried before, to gain a unique glimpse into the past and, ultimately, to love these special places as much as we do.

Who you'll work with

When we say for everyone, for ever, we mean it. We look after places so everyone can enjoy them. But we know that some people have yet to experience the wonderful buildings, green spaces and coastlines that we care for, and that’s something we’re working hard to change. So we’re making ourselves more accessible and reaching out to people across the nation. We’ve come a long way but we know we still have some way to go and it all starts with the people that work for us. It’s not about backgrounds, age or culture. It’s about finding great individuals to engage with others and get more people enjoying the places we look after.
