Spurn Lighthouse Volunteer

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a lighthouse keeper? If you have and you have a passion for lighthouses and their history, then this could be the perfect role for you!

The Lighthouse at Spurn is a Heritage must see for visitors. The Lighthouse brings the story of Spurn to life, spanning across its five floors. The multimedia interpretation enables visitors to get a glimpse into the past of this unique place and the journey concludes at the top of the Lighthouse where visitors will get a 360-degree birds eye view if this amazing place.

You’ll definitely need a head for heights for this role! You’ll inspire and interact with our visitors while they are in the Lighthouse, by bringing the story of Spurn to life and sharing knowledge about the history and changing landscape that is Spurn today. You’ll love talking to people and enjoy igniting their imagination to bring the past to life.

You will need be reasonably fit as you will be required to ascend and descend several flights of narrow steps in the Lighthouse whilst volunteering.  Local knowledge is desirable but not essential as you will receive training about the history of Spurn.
