New volunteers are always welcome
The John Bunyan Community Boats is entirely run by volunteers and are central to the success of the overall project by raising our profile with the public in Bedford and providing The Trust’s source of income. To keep these running and deliver an outstanding experience to over 7,000 guests throughout the season is a fantastic team achievement involving many people in the crewing, maintenance, and administration.
We’re recruiting NOW for shore-based roles to support John Bunyan Boat cruising. Join our warm and welcoming, ever-growing group of volunteers who make John Bunyan possible. There are current roles for Commercial Leader, Marketing Leader, Customer Liaison, as well as volunteers looking to progress to Helm, Purser or already qualified as MCA Certified Boat Master – it’s a great people-facing role, out and about on the water.

If you are interested and are willing to offer some of your time to this fantastic project then we would love to hear from you, so please get in touch to find out more.
