Welcome to the Trust

Starting soon? Welcome to the team! We can't wait to meet you.

We're sure you still have a few unanswered questions, so we pulled together this simple site to offer you a little more insight into life at the Trust. So, grab a cup of tea and a biscuit, turn up the sound on your machine and discover a little more about the Trust and what it's really like working for us. We also need you to complete a little administration before you start. Can you please download, complete and return the Pre-employment and expressions of wish forms. There is also a booklet available that offers details of our pension plan. We hope you find this information useful.

Before you start think about how you can best prepare for your first day. Why not prepare a few questions to discuss with your manager. Maybe visit a property or event and see for yourself how our values come alive in all we do. Or watch our films, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with what the Trust is up to. We have included links to our social media platform on this page. Remember you can come back as often as you like before you start. See you soon!

This website is aimed at new staff, so if you're a volunteer feel free to take a look at the videos and additional content, but the forms and reward elements won't be relevant for you. For volunteer induction please speak to your new line manager.

More about our values

To give people physical and spiritual refreshment, we encourage them to come, visit, explore, respond, collaborate, join, give, volunteer, take part. Not by preaching, but by suggesting, enabling and inspiring.

Playing our part

Our core purpose is a virtuous circle - we look after special places, visitors come and have an enjoyable time, we gain income from their support and that allows us to keep on looking after special places.
