The Role

Thank you for your interest in applying for the Volunteer Ranger role. The service has now been running in Bushy and Richmond since April 2019, during which time we have reached an amazing number of park visitors to enhance their experiences through information and interpretation.

The opportunity is highly competitive and due to our Volunteer Rangers being key representatives of The Royal Parks we have a strict mark scheme and application process. We want to know why you want to join us and what experiences and skills you can bring to the service. Please do take some time to think about your answers to the sections below.

You have up to 150 words for each question.

We are recruiting Volunteer Rangers for Richmond and Bushy park. Please let us know which one (or more) suits you best. *


The Royal Parks are committed to encouraging all kinds of people to enjoy visiting London's Royal Parks and seek to be an organisation that is representative of the city it serves. These principles are shared by the volunteer programme: it is important that our opportunities are accessible to all, and that our volunteer team reflects the communities we work in.

The following three questions are optional, you are not obliged to provide this information.
