The 17th century house and gardens of Treasurer’s House have a rich and illustrious heritage which relies on over 300 volunteers to ensure guests are greeted with a welcome, exciting, expert and informative visit.
The house is famed for its thirteen authentically decorated and functioning period rooms which play host to Frank Green’s remarkable collection of antique furniture, ceramics, textiles and paintings from over a 300-year period. Although steeped in rich history, you don’t need to have a degree in history or knowledge of antiques to contribute as a volunteer. Whatever role you put yourself forward for as a volunteer, training is provided and a regular social calendar provides opportunities for meeting like-minded others. It’s a great way to learn from National Trust experts, pick up new skills, and to do your bit in preserving York’s heritage for future generations.
Current opportunities include:
Our room guides provide a welcoming presence for visitors, helping to bring Treasurer’s House to life while playing a valuable part in safeguarding our collections.
Assisting with the smooth running of the gallery shop, helping to meet sales targets while providing a friendly and helpful service for all visitors/customers.
Working as part of a team, volunteer gardeners help with the upkeep and development of the garden at Treasurer’s House so that it can be enjoyed by all visitors.
