The Charleston Trust offers many opportunities for those wishing to work with us, volunteer or gain some work experience. All of our permanent, seasonal, internships, apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities are detailed below.
PERMANENT AND SEASONAL OPPORTUNITIES
We offer many volunteering opportunities, from helping with mailings and organising events, to weeding the garden and working with the Curator. The time and expertise that volunteers bring to Charleston are of enormous value to the Trust. We also hope to provide volunteers with experience and references they can use in developing a career in the arts.
We are seeking photographers to take images of Charleston’s house, gardens, collection and it’s many activities throughout the year. We are looking for people who have a passion for photography and can ‘capture the moment’. Further details about the role and how to apply is available to download here Volunteer Photographer brief
“I fell for Charleston’s charms the first time I visited and I wanted to get involved there and then. Through volunteering in the house and garden, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some truly wonderful people who are passionate about the place and its extraordinary legacy. Volunteering here has enriched my life immensely and I have developed not only a deeper knowledge of the Bloomsbury group and the Charleston collection, but a profound affection for the place that will never leave me.” Clare.
“I have been volunteering at Charleston for nearly 15 years in the house assisting with conservation and as a House Steward. What I love is, every time there is a surprise like discovering a message on the back of an object or seeing a painting from the collection in its original state. Most of all, my joy is talking to the public while stewarding on Sundays, often learning from them and hopefully them learning from me! ” Sally.
