Get Involved

The JORVIK Group of Attractions offers fantastic opportunities for both placements and volunteers which incorporate projects or activities involving all of our different attractions.

Due to COVID-19 our volunteer and placement programme is currently closed to new applicants, as we review how we offer volunteering and placement opportunities in our attractions. Please see our Volunteer and Placement pages for further information. To stay updated, please sign up to our volunteering and placement mailing list.

Joining as an Attractions volunteer:

Our volunteer page lists the volunteer opportunities that involve projects linked to The JORVIK Group of Attractions. These offer people the opportunity to get involved with the York Archaeological Trust and help us to bring to life the fascinating history of these unique sites.

Volunteering suits anyone wanting to gain new experiences, share their current skills, enhance our visitors’ experience, meet new people and get involved in the aims of the York Archaeological Trust.

Take a look at our Volunteers’ page for further information on the roles available, the registration periods and how to enquire about joining our volunteer team. If you have a set-period of time to undertake your experience in or have specific study or work related needs to meet then you would be best to consider our placement offers (see below).

Joining as an Attractions placement:

Placement opportunities suit anyone from a local college or university student, to those looking to arrange independent placements where they need to undertake a set period of involvement to achieve their experience or study aims.

Our placement opportunities can involve time at one of our JORVIK Group attractions as well as experience in some of our non-customer facing departments.

For further information on our placement opportunities and how to apply for a place please take a look at our Placements page.
