Volunteering opportunities now live!

Are you looking for a new challenge? Would you like to give back to your community and learn new skills? We are looking for Bridge Ambassadors!

Bridge Ambassadors are volunteers who engage people with two of the iconic structures which connect Devon and Cornwall - the Tamar Bridge and the Royal Albert Bridge.

We're looking for an enthusiastic and positive team of volunteers who can help support us in a variety of roles.

You could be giving guided tours of the Tamar Bridge, welcoming visitors as they stop off at our Learning Centre on their way to Cornwall, or inspiring children on a school trip.

In return you could:

· Increase your confidence

· Gain an insight into the work of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) sectors and develop your skills

· Feel a sense of achievement knowing you are part of the Tamar Bridge's history

· Meet like-minded people and work as part of a team

· Enjoy the satisfaction of giving something back to your community

There are 3 core volunteer roles which Bridge Ambassadors may fulfil:

Visitor Welcome Assistants: To deliver a friendly welcome to all visitors to the Learning Centre and Tamar Bridge

Bridge Guide: To deliver guided walking tours or information about the Tamar and Royal Albert Bridges to the general public and other groups on and around the Tamar Bridge and in the Learning Centre.

Learning Assistant: To assist the delivery of primary and secondary school workshops and tours during term time and family activities during school holidays.
