New Student Volunteer Opportunities at Hafod Copperworks site!

Educational Tour Guiding Opportunity at The Hafod Morfa Copperworks

Over the last three years, Swansea University has been working to regenerate the Hafod-Morrfa Copperworks, a crucial monument to Swansea’s proud history as the centre of the global copper industry.

We are now looking to recruit and train a small team of volunteers to lead tours for schools and members of the public visiting the site. You will be provided with training and orientation about the site’s history, the resources and tools  available for you to use and advice for working with the public/schoolchildren. We would ask people to be available on an occasional basis from April onwards, sometimes midweek and sometimes at weekends.  Volunteers would work in pairs. Travel costs to and from the site will be paid.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about an important part of local and global history and gain some useful skills and experience.

There is also an opportunity to extend the Hafod-Morfa tour to White Rock, five minutes’ walk across the river. White Rock predates Hafod-Morfa by fifty years and is being reclaimed by the Friends of White Rock. Training in site history will be provided by the Friends.

Please apply by February 28th  by email to Stuart Griffin  s.m.griffin@swansea.ac.uk setting out why you are interested in the role and what skills, qualities and experience you offer.
