Audley End House and Gardens are looking for Buggy Drivers to take visitors around the site.

Buggy Drivers are there to offer this transport whilst providing a warm and friendly welcome.

What will I be doing?

  • Making sure that the buggy is clean and safe to drive by carrying out a driver’s daily checklist and giving the vehicle a clean at the end of your shift
  • Driving the buggy around the designated route
  • Inspiring visitors with stories about the history of the site and the various features of the garden
  • Helping visitors orientate themselves around the site and provide recommendations of interesting parts of the garden to explore
  • Keeping an eye on the site to ensure visitors are enjoying the garden in a safe and responsible manner and reporting any issues to the site supervisor
  • You might also be asked to provide ad hoc support to the Visitor Operations, Hospitality and Events staff as required. This could range from transporting guests around the site through to conducting the evening sweep (checking and closing garden buildings) to ensure all visitors have left.

Skills needed:

  • Driving Licence
  • Practical experience driving a similar type of shuttle or golf cart vehicle is desirable but not essential
  • Shuttle Drivers will need to be confident engaging with the public and enjoy chatting to visitors throughout the day
