Are you looking for a something different when it comes to volunteering?

Give back to the community and learn some new skills at the same time!

Do you like meeting people? Are you fascinated by the past and its connections to our lives today?

We are currently looking for people to help open National Trust places – particularly No 1 Pump Station and Woodbridge. You’ll greet visitors and introduce them to the amazing stories associated with our incredible heritage sites.

We’re also moving to an exciting new visitation model, including online bookings for timed visits and tours.

Volunteering is one way to give back to the community and show your support for conserving Western Australia unique heritage. We have a great team doing just that across the state.

Come along to an information session to hear from current volunteers about what they do and why they love it. You will learn about our places, the stories behind them and find out more about the National Trust.

Sessions will be held at the Old Observatory, 4 Havelock Street, West Perth on:

  • Thursday 7 April 5.30 – 7.00 pm
  • Saturday 9 April 2.30 – 4.00 pm

You can also join this event remotely if you prefer. Once you register details will be sent to you on how to join.

Light refreshments will be provided to in person attendees.

Register online or call 08 9321 6088 for details.

If you decide to become a volunteer the National Trust will provide formal training including customer service, finance and an introduction to heritage.


Volunteers need to complete a national police clearance, which will be paid for by the National Trust. Volunteers must have a mobile phone, an email address and be comfortable using computers.

For the safety of our volunteer cohort we ask that all potential volunteers show their proof of vaccination.

Volunteers in these roles need to be able to make a regular commitment.

Future volunteering opportunities

Later in the year there will be opportunities for garden volunteers and other roles. To find out about future opportunities keep an eye on the volunteer page on our website and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
