Working here

The Charterhouse is an almshouse and museum based near the Barbican, providing residential care to a community of elderly people since 1611.

Situated on 7 acres in central London, the majority of our buildings date back to the Tudor period, with elements of medieval, Victorian and more modern architecture. With links to some of the most famous people and periods throughout English history, this is an incredible and unique place to work.

The Charterhouse is an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff working for us will earn a real Living Wage as a minimum.

Over 7000 organisations, including us, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here.

Volunteering opportunities

We often have lots of exciting opportunities to volunteer at the Charterhouse for anyone aged 18 and over. If you’re looking to gain experience for your CV and develop new skills we may have an opportunity for you in our museum, learning, infirmary and gardening programmes.

Under 18s
Unfortunately at this time we cannot take any volunteers who are under 18 years of age. As an alternative, we do offer two student work experience placements per year, organised through our partners Inspire! We are unable to take any direct requests outside of this.

We have filled our volunteering places for the moment.
