Summary

Do you love working with people from all ages and backgrounds? As the Membership and Visitor Welcome Assistant it’s your role to ensure that every aspect of our visitor experience is going to delight our customers.

This is a support role so you will need to be able to work weekends, all school holidays and Bank Holidays and end of May through our Rose Season (all of June). Outside of those busy times you may be needed to cover the permanent team's holidays. You will need to be very flexible in your working pattern as, in the busiest weeks, you may be needed to work 4/5 days and then perhaps no days in the quieter weeks. The rota is done a month in advance so you will get 4 weeks notice of your shifts.

Please note this role is on offer for around 400 hours per candidate, however this may vary dependent upon the availability of the individuals.

What it's like to work here

Located in the idyllic riverside gardens, between ancient trees, bubbling brooks and rolling lawns Mottisfont is full of surprises.

The wider estate includes 1600 acres of woodland, tenanted farms and Curbridge Nature Reserve, as well as relaxing walks.

Mottisfont is home to a beautiful riverside garden offering a sensory treat with glorious old-fashioned roses which are also left to produce ornamental fruit in autumn and winter.

What you'll be doing

As the largest conservation charity in Europe we work hard to raise funds, so that we can continue to care for all the heritage in our trust. Visitors are a vital part of what we do, so you’ll be responsible for ensuring that you provide an excellent service to all our visitors, every day.

You’ll be asked to confidently sell membership and gift aid on entry, as well as work to our sales targets. You’ll also be responsible for answering queries and making sure visitors can find everything they need for their visit.
