Volunteer at Jarrow Hall

Jarrow Hall Volunteer

Discover your passion, learn new skills and enjoy yourself as a History Maker or a Place Changer

As a History Maker you'll bring the world of Bede and medieval Northumbria to life in our reconstruction Anglo-Saxon settlement. Launching in 2018, you'll receive training and support to develop your own Anglo-Saxon character and be part of the very first team bringing our Everyday Living History project to life.

As a Place Changer you can find the role to suit you on our incredibly varied 11-acre site. Whether it's becoming a Tour Guide, welcoming visitors at our reception, helping out on the farm or Herb Garden, getting involved with the museum and our collection or helping behind the scenes, we'll work with you to get you exactly where you want to be.

Become a volunteer now at Jarrow Hall and you can expect a welcoming environment, relevant training, supervision from our close-knit teams, travel expenses, celebration events, and the opportunity to meet new people and develop transferable skills.

Whether specialising in one or helping with all of these elements of our offer, you will become part of the Groundwork family and help to engage, inform and assist visitors, staff and fellow volunteers.

We ask for a minimum of 1 shift per week of 3-4 hours between 9.30am - 4.30pm Monday to Sunday, however we are flexible on this. From time to time you may be asked to kindly support activities and events off site across South Tyneside and Newcastle.
