Would you like to join the volunteer teams at our wonderful museums and attractions? It takes a lot of people to maintain our waterways heritage and make sure these historic destinations are great places to visit. Find out how you can get involved.
Our marvellous museums and amazing attractions have dedicated teams of staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to bring them to life. We are so proud of what they have achieved.
However, as a charity, we can only stretch so far. So we need you to get involved with all sorts of jobs.
Whether you want to be a museum helper, lock keeper, help wildlife, learn more about canal heritage, become one of our Explorer education volunteers or take on more of an office-based role, there’s bound to be one of our volunteer opportunities to suit you.
Volunteers also help out on our reception desks and gift shops, aboard our boats and maintaining our internal displays. Elsewhere, our team cuts the grass, clears the woods, greases the lock mechanisms, paints the benches and gets stuck in with many more important jobs. We couldn’t continue to care for our wonderful waterways without them.
Whatever your interests and experience we'd love to hear from you. Take a look at our volunteer opportunities below, or search for a role near you
