- Follow all instructions given on health & safety and use of equipment including wearing a hi-vis vest
- To verbally greet visitors and direct them towards the event

Time commitment: 
- This role is only needed on our very busy event days, which tend to be most Bank Holiday Mondays and occasional Saturdays and Sundays

- Times are usually a 2 hour shift between 10.30am-2.30pm
- Very occasionally assistance may be needed in an evening between 4.30-9.30pm

Skills you need: 
- Enjoy being outside

- Friendly and welcoming
- Calm and patient
- Relatively fit and happy to stand up for most of the 2 hour shift

- Free entry to Hartlebury Castle and a 10% discount in the shop

Training and support: 
- It will be clearly explained to you at the start of your shift exactly what you need to do and how

- You will be provided with any health and safety and emergency procedures information that you may need for the role 

Practical consideration: 
- You'll be provided with a hi-vis vest to wear during shifts
- The dress code is smart casual
- You may be given a radio to use to keep in touch with other volunteers and if you are, you'll be shown how to use it
