Do you want to learn new skills and make new friends?

Why not join our team of dedicated volunteers? The K&ESR always welcomes new volunteer staff. You will need to be reasonably fit and have good eyesight (glasses are acceptable) with normal colour vision if you wish to work on the footplate or be a Guard or Signalman. For safety critical tasks such as these you will need to undergo a medical.

There are a wide variety of jobs on offer from footplate work for the more energetic to Guards and Signalmans posts that require less physical effort. If you are cannot come to the railway or feel unable to perform operating duties you could still help us with administration or other work.

If you don’t fancy operating duties there are also interesting opportunities in other departments, just fill in the appropriate information and we will pass your information to the Department Manager concerned.

If you think you might be interested in helping the railway we would like to hear from you. Please fill in the form below with no obligation and we will contact you as soon as possible. All information sent to us is confidential.

If you are interested in joining the K&ESR as a working volunteer, please complete the form below and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
