DIG Volunteer Photography - September 2019 (11)

The JORVIK Group consists of the world famous JORVIK Viking CentreDIGBarley HallHenry VII at Micklegate Bar and Richard III at Monk Bar and offers a varied range of history and archaeology.

Our volunteers get involved across these attractions and are a vital part of the Trust; offering additional services and activities that would not be possible without their enthusiasm and dedicated involvement.

We usually welcome new volunteer involvement via set intake periods each year. These offer an opportunity to join the team in the company of other new volunteers as well as lots of training and support along the way.

Our volunteering programme remains closed to new applications whilst we prepare to welcome our existing teams back to our attractions and offices following government COVID-secure guidance.

When we are in a position to welcome new volunteers, this will be published on our websites and through our volunteering and placement mailing list.

To hear about the latest volunteering opportunities, we recommend signing up for our volunteering mailing list. You can also find out more information about our volunteer and placement programme by downloading a copy of frequently asked questions here.
