Contract: Permanent, part-time, 700 annualised hours
About the role
"Wow!" "What beautiful gardens and fantastic costumes in the house!" Just the sort of reactions we love. You'll love hearing them too, as you help visitors to enjoy a brilliant day out here at Killerton House. Working with a great team, you'll welcome visitors and help them to explore the grounds, and talk to them about the house's fascinating past. Putting your excellent people skills to the best possible use, you'll be selling admission tickets, promoting membership and Gift Aid - helping us to meet our targets. Most importantly, you'll be welcoming our visitors so warmly that they feel like guests as they arrive and friends by the time they leave.
There are two roles to fill, each working 700 hours per annum. You'll work two/three days per week during the open season (mid February to early November, end of November to early January), including one day at the weekend.
You've a smile and a story for everyone. That's something all our people have in common. We'd also like you to have experience in customer service and sales. You'll love working with people of all ages, and always strive to make a good impression. You have a great eye for detail and a flexible way of working. Ideally, you'll have a genuine knowledge and interest in the work of the National Trust. We'd also like you to be comfortable working to measurable targets and to have some cash handling experience.
We believe that people deserve more than just 'good service' but an amazing experience they'll never forget. It's about believing in what you do, sharing not telling, inspiring others to feel as passionate as you and creating lasting memories.
We'll give you all the training and support you need. You can also look forward to 25 days' holiday (pro rata for part-time), as well as free admission to all our incredible places, and a helpful 20% off at our shops, cafes and restaurants. But they're just the benefits we can tell you about here.
Here at the National Trust, we want even more people to enjoy our extraordinary places. We want people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved with them, be inspired by them, and love them as much as we do. That's why we've put some bold ambitions in place. We want everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to feel like a member of the National Trust and, by 2020, we want to have grown our membership to more than five million.
Help us to help everyone enjoy our special places. To apply please visit our website by clicking the 'Apply now' button and search using keyword IRC3590. Closing date: 25 January 2013. Provisional interview date: 06 February 2013.
