Do You Like Meeting New People?

Have you got a passion for history or archaeology? Would you love to support the Trust by providing inspiring services to engage visitors with the rich heritage and archaeology of York?

JORVIK Viking Centre is part of The JORVIK Group which 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.

Due to COVID-19 our volunteer programme is currently closed to new applications. We will review this in early 2021.

If you want to be the first to hear about new opportunities, we recommend signing up for our volunteering mailing list. We hope to be able to share some new remote opportunities with this list in the future and you can find out more about these here.
