Weekend volunteers needed for Cathedral Visitor Centre 

Peterborough Cathedral is recruiting friendly and outgoing volunteers to welcome people who come to see its new Visitor Centre. In particular they need volunteers who can work at weekends, for a morning or an afternoon session.
The free exhibitions and displays in the Centre show visitors the amazing story of the Cathedral and the origins of the city that surrounds it. Important historical artefacts, such as the original Deed of Endowment for the Cathedral dating from the time of Henry VIII, form part of a timeline display. There is also a digital touch table with a quiz to test your knowledge of Cathedral history.
“We had a fantastic response to our original appeal for volunteers when we opened the Centre last year, but we still a few more people to cover holiday times and weekends,” said Natalie Freeman, the Visitor Centre Manager. “It’s a great opportunity for anyone planning a career in tourism, hospitality or the museum sector to build their CV. We can be flexible around your other commitments too.”
Nadira Auty, who has been volunteering at the Visitor Centre since it opened said: “I really enjoy talking to the people who come to the Centre and telling them what we have here. They come from all over the world.”

A full description of what the Visitor Centre volunteers are asked to do canbe accessed here.
The Cathedral is also recruiting Welcomers to work with the team inside the Cathedral itself.  More information about this role can be acessed here.
