As a result of our success as a major tourist attraction and the fact that we are a growing organisation we have an on-going need to make sure that we have sufficient volunteers to fill daily operational positions.
There is a pressing need for more volunteers in some departments more than others particularly in OTC and the Shops. To help boost our volunteer numbers urgent action has been taken to get more volunteers interested.
Philip Young the newly appointed Director of Recruitment for the Trust has taken steps to help fill these gaps at a quicker pace than we normally take. This weekend he has appeared in an interview with Radio Winchcombe (being repeated on Tuesday) in order to raise awareness with local people of the vacancies available. In addition to this there will shortly be a leaflet drop in the Cheltenham, Winchcombe/Greet and Toddington areas. The GWRT recruitment stand is now a regular feature at GWR railway events.
However your help is needed to help us identify new volunteers so if you can spare some time and would like to explore a new role or you know of family, friends or neighbours that would be interested, then please do not hesitate to let us know. A very warm welcome awaits.
Please contact Philip Young, via http://www.gwsr.com/contact-us/contact-form.aspx selecting volunteering from the list, to see how you can help us.
