Alnwick Castle is one of the most iconic castles in Britain. It's also one of the most popular visitor attractions in the North East of England. Every year thousands of people from around the world come to the Castle; whether that be to learn more about its history, explore its TV and film connections or simply to have fun, when people visit we want them to have the best day possible.

For that to happen we look to recruit individuals who share our enthusiasm for history and can pass that onto the many visitors. Alnwick Castle's staff are one big team; every member of staff is valued and acknowledge the important part they play in making sure visitors have the great experience they expect.

The friendly welcome, the fascinating history, the amazing food, the interactive learning, the story telling and the clean facilities; it's all important, it all contributes to the great visitor experience and we are looking for people to ensure all of this is achieved.
