About volunteering for Waterways Experiences
You would be joining a highly motivated and friendly team of over 150 regular volunteers. The largest group are those who undergo special training to act as boat crew or skipper for our year-round day trips offered to disability groups and the general public. About a third of these volunteers also undertake ‘back office ‘ functions such as client bookings, membership administration, crew allocations, marketing, finance, IT etc. These roles are divided amongst dedicated teams, each with its own leader. We have a formal volunteer agreement which explains what you can expect of Waterways Experiences and what we expect of volunteers.
If you think you might be interested in this role, please fill in basic details about yourself on our Volunteer Expression of interest form on our Waterways Experiences website, and we will contact you within 7 days to arrange an informal chat at our boat base, ideally on a Wednesday if convenient for you.
We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds and age groups (minimum age 16 years old).
