Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it. It is a World Heritage site and Northern Ireland’s most visited attraction. Our team work hard to provide exciting experiences to help our visitors from near and far understand and enjoy this amazing place and as a Visitor Experience and Programming Volunteer you will have the fantastic opportunity to get develop your skills and confidence through being involved in supporting every aspect of this work from welcoming and orientating visitors to planning and delivering brilliant experiences and sharing our stories.

ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Volunteers will live in fully furnished shared accommodation onsite. You will have your own bedroom and shared kitchen, bathroom and living areas. This is a self-catering placement and you will be provided with cooking utensils and equipment. The volunteer accommodation is within close walking distance from a public bus route to a nearby town, but applicants should note, this is a rural placement. Although the start date is indicated, some flexibility may be required due to COVID related restrictions and Brexit related administration.
TRAINING DURING THE ACTIVITY
Volunteers will receive all training needed from our experienced team to be able to participate fully and safely in the tasks you will be involved in. Each volunteer has a volunteer manager who will provide task related support, supervision and guidance. We would be happy to designate one day a week for ESC volunteers to develop an agreed project which they initiate, is meaningful to them and supports their skills and personal development.
Volunteers should have an interest in cultural and natural heritage and the environment, but do not need to have specialist knowledge or skills – an enthusiasm and commitment to learning more and getting stuck in is what you really need! An interest in helping to share our places and our stories with others is important and some experience in providing great customer and visitor experiences would be helpful. Good knowledge of English would be beneficial. We can talk you through the role to help you decide if it is for you. The role is dependent on eligibility to volunteer in NI.
