Port Sunlight Village Trust is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Port Sunlight Conservation Area. The village is the finest surviving example of early urban planning in the UK. It is one of the Liverpool City Region’s premier visitor attractions and home to over 2,000 residents.

An independent charity established in 1999, the trust maintains all of the parks, gardens, and monuments and memorials in the village. We own one-third of the housing stock – some 300 properties – and eight of the public buildings from which we derive our primary source of income. We also operate the award-winning Arts Council Accredited Port Sunlight Museum through which we engage local schools, domestic and international visitors, and the local community.

We are seeking to recruit a Cleaner to join the Operations Team and provide an efficient and effective cleaning service to Port Sunlight Village Trust’s various properties and facilities, ensuring the premises are presented to required standards at all times. Ideally applicants should have previous experience of cleaning in a commercial setting and without direct supervision.
The working days are: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, plus 3 hours every third weekend.

Volunteer Role 

Our staff and volunteers are integral to the success of the village.

Port Sunlight could not function as we do without the invaluable support of our volunteers. Volunteers themselves also gain a lot from their work at the Trust: they develop new skills, make new friends and get to contribute to their local community. Volunteer roles include:

• Meeting and greeting visitors at our Edwardian worker’s cottage.
• Meeting and greeting visitors at Port Sunlight Museum
• Helping out at special events, e.g. lectures, village trails, shows and road races.
• Carrying out historical and collections-based research.
• Caring for our collections.
• Leading learning sessions with schools and other visitors
• Surveying our buildings
• Helping to maintain our bedding displays

Our commitment to supporting and developing our volunteers is outlined in our Volunteer agreement form.

We are currently not recruiting any volunteers at the moment, please check back again soon to see available opportunities.
