Membership & Visitor Welcome Assistant

Posted 9 April by National Trust Ended

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.

What it's like to work here

Isaac Newton was born in this modest manor house in 1642 and he made many of his most important discoveries about light and gravity here in the plague years of 1665-6. As well as his ground-breaking scientific work, Newton went on to roles as diverse as a Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, President of the Royal Society and Master of the Royal Mint.

The Manor House, his family home, is furnished as a 17th-century farmhouse might have been at this time. You can still see the famous apple tree that inspired his thoughts on gravity from the bedroom window, and explore some of his ideas for yourself in the Science Discovery Centre.
