North Norfolk Railway Volunteering
What skills do I need?
One of the things that you will notice when you join us, is that volunteers on the Railway have such a wide and varied skill set, including engineering, gardening, catering, teaching, carpentry, IT and many, many more. If you choose to take on a role that requires specific knowledge or skills, you will be given the necessary training required, but there is nothing stopping you getting involved with more than one department, so if you have multiple skills you are sure to get the opportunity to put them into practice somewhere on the Railway.
A willingness to smile and to help others do the same are the only essential qualifications!
How old do I have to be?
Our volunteers come in all ages. Some have through our Junior Club, some work full time, some have retired, while others take their holidays working on the railway. Whatever age you will be more than welcome.
How much time do I have to give?
We understand that everybody’s availability differs, some people volunteer almost full time while others travel long distances to volunteer a couple of times a year. While we don’t expect you to be here full time, you may just have so much fun that you want be here with everyone as much as possible.
What’s in it for me?
The North Norfolk Railway is a big community of interesting, knowledgeable, friendly people who come from all manner of walks of life. As a volunteer you will be at the centre of this community. You will make lots of new friends, have the opportunity to learn new and develop existing skills, be part of a team as well as feel part of the wider organisation. You can enjoy travel benefits on the NNR as well as other preservation Railways. You will receive a monthly newsletter keeping you abreast of all the latest news and information, discounts from our catering and retail outlets. Volunteer accommodation is also available for those whom travel to join us. You will be having fun whilst making a big difference.
