Would you like to use your passion for delivering high quality visitor experiences and be at the heart of telling English Heritage's story? If so, then join our Historic Properties team at Rievaulx Abbey and play your part in helping visitors experience more of England's captivating past and preserve it for generations to come.

This role includes working in the gift shop, on the customer admissions desk, selling membership and serving customers in our tearoom. Our tearoom provides the social hub of this historic site and you will play a vital part in creating a warm and welcoming environment where our visitors can relax and enjoy good quality, local, food.

This is a unique opportunity for you to work at the impressive ruins of one of England's most powerful Cistercian monasteries.

Providing a warm welcome to a diverse range of visitors to this historic site, you will be ensuring they have relevant information for their visit and about the wider local environment.

We're looking for people who are committed to providing the very highest levels of customer service and enjoy being a part of a busy team with constantly changing priorities. As a confident communicator, you will be comfortable building rapport with customers and using your skills in sales to provide exceptional service at all times.

By joining us you'll enjoy the rewards of a great team environment and an inspiring location, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit and work. You'll also be joining our charity which through our 400 historic monuments, buildings and sites, brings the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.

Please note, you will be limited to applying for this role at just one site at a time. If we have several of these roles currently available that you are interested in, only apply for the role at the location that is most suitable for you. If your application is successful at the short listing stage, you will get the opportunity to let us know of any other sites you might be interested in working at.
