Volunteer guides

Although our experienced guides are very skilled at finding their way around, there is always something new to learn as our hospitals continue to evolve. There’s far more to the role that way-finding, though. The reassuring sight of a friendly, helpful person ready to help as people enter the hospital can help calm anxious patients and even change the whole hospital experience for them. Many of our guides are able to assist wheelchair users and this is a very valuable service as many of our corridors are very long! You will be based at main reception, outpatients or the Addenbrooke’s Treatment Centre (ATC) entrance and we’re looking for people who are willing to move to different areas depending on demand on the day. We’re looking for people who are friendly, cheerful, accommodating and resilient.

Times: Flexible, usually a 3-4 hour slot, between the hours of 07:00 and 20:00
Uniform: Red volunteer polo shirt with red gilet or red fleece
