Have you heard about the fantastic National Trust training scheme called ‘Passport to your future’? It is a wonderful scheme helping train and employ people looking for work in our industy. No experience or qualifications required, but enthusiasm is a must!
This year, Charlecote are one of the 11 National Trust places taking part and we’re looking to recruit someone to join our outdoor team in the park and garden. The role is for 1 year, starting in September.
Gardens and grounds that look good naturally take a lot of dedication and hard work. Whether we’re planting bulbs in a historically accurate pattern in our parterre, or clearing branches from the woodland garden, there’s always something to be doing. It’s a particularly exciting time at Charlecote Park at the moment: we’re in the process of researching and rewriting the history of the landscape gardens and as we’re doing so, a new story is beginning to emerge. This will have a massive impact on what we do in the future, and how we’re going to do it. By using our findings we’ll be bringing history to natural life – literally growing historical facts and stories to educate and inspire our visitors. And by adapting our visitor interpretation to accommodate this, we’ll keep them up to date with every stage of the adventure.
You can find out more about the scheme and how to apply here. We are holding a taster day for anyone who is interested in the scheme later this month (you need to apply for a place on this taster day so don’t delay!). Applications for placements open on 18th May!
