Work with us

The Charterhouse is an almshouse and museum based near the Barbican, providing residential care to a community of elderly people since 1611.

Situated on 7 acres in central London, the majority of our buildings date back to the Tudor period, with elements of medieval, Victorian and more modern architecture. With links to some of the most famous people and periods throughout English history, this is an exciting time to join the organisation.

Volunteering opportunities

We offer lots of exciting opportunities to volunteer at the Charterhouse for anyone aged 18 and over. If you’re looking to gain experience for your CV and develop new skills we may have an opportunity for you in our museum, learning, infirmary and gardening programmes.

Under 18s
Unfortunately at this time we cannot take any volunteers who are under 18 years of age. As an alternative, we do offer two student work experience placements per year, organised through our partners Inspire! We are unable to take any direct requests outside of this.

Infirmary Volunteer – Befriender

The Charterhouse is a unique historic site which boasts a varied history over the past 650 years. Today, the site is not only a working almshouse, but also has an Infirmary and a Museum on site- and we are proud to have volunteers involved across almost every aspect of the work being done here. We are currently looking for some enthusiastic and committed volunteers to join the Infirmary team, who will be focussed on befriending some of the residents of the Infirmary, both through 1-2-1 and group interactions.

This is a really important role, and can make a huge difference to the individuals who live in the Infirmary, by providing friendship, social interactions and something to look forward to during the week. In terms of commitment, we ask for you to decide how many shifts (of about 2 hours) you would like to do, be that weekly or fortnightly, and to then continue on this schedule – as this allows residents to look forward to, and expect visits. If you have previous experience in similar roles that would be welcomed, but it is not a requirement. If you are interested, please fill in and send through a completed “Expression of Interest” form to: holly.walker@thecharterhouse.org by 5pm on Monday 28th January.

Please Note: All applications will be reviewed, and suitable candidates will be invited to interview and an induction day. If you are successful at the interview, we will also undertake an enhanced DBS check for you, and send you the certificate once it is completed.
