Examples of opportunities

Volunteers photo

At Great Ormond Street Hospital we have more than 60 different volunteer opportunities across a range of exciting roles, from working directly with patients and families to assisting with reception and administration.

Please note: All weekday volunteers complete a probationary period (of 50 hours - approximately three months) in the role of GOSH Guide - helping patients, families and visitors find their way around the hospital. The selection of roles below is just an example of the range of roles in the hospital and may not be currently available. We ask you to be flexible in the types of roles you might be interested in.

We do not recruit volunteers directly into a specific role and it is only through your probationary period do we match you to the role that suits you best and that is available.
