Can you help meet and greet site visitors?

The crowds start to gather for the first tour of the 2018 season.

We’re looking for volunteers to help meet and greet visitors at the Ness of Brodgar dig site this summer from July 3, to August 21.

The site is open every day, except August 11, and we have two Special Sunday events on July 21 and August 18.

We need people to meet visitors to the site, make sure they get parked safely, direct them to tours, show them the shop, tell them about sponsoring a square and answer any questions they may have.

If you are confident, outgoing and like meeting people from all over the world and have some spare time, this is the perfect way to spend the summer in Orkney.

The week is split into different sessions:

  • Monday – Friday: 10.00 – 13.00 or 13.00 – 16.30 (or all day if you prefer)
  • Saturday and Sunday: the shop is open only for the duration of the tours, so sessions are 10.45 – 12.30 and 14.45 – 16.30.

You can volunteer for as many or as few sessions and you want. We are particularly keen to hear from people who can volunteer at weekends. If you are interested please get in touch as soon as possible by emailing brodgarmeetgreet@btinternet.com
