  • Do you want to learn new skills?
  • Make the most of skills you already have?
  • Would you like to add to your CV?
  • Meet new people and work alongside knowledgeable and skilled staff?

If you answered yes to any of these, then come and volunteer for Cadw. 

A recent volunteer said of her experience:

"I have really enjoyed giving the talks and I am not leaving gladly, but I need to concentrate on finally passing my exams. Thanks so much for the opportunity, I have certainly learned a lot from the experience. I will miss coming to Caerphilly as I have grown very fond of the castle, having spent some time on researching its history more than what I knew just growing up.  I find it fascinating and magnificent, every time I see it. To be able to walk within its walls and feel part of the work that goes on to preserve those walls and inspire others to feel as passionate about it as I and Cadw do, has been wonderful.”
