Appeal for tram volunteers in Blackpool Wednesday February 1, 2023

Ahead of another busy season, Blackpool Heritage Tram Tours is appealing for volunteers to help it run a packed programme of activities.

It’s on the lookout for Heritage Ambassadors to engage with visitors to Blackpool’s famous Promenade. In addition to selling pre-booked seats on Promenade and Coastal tram tours, they will assist the tram team with checking in passengers and delivering a warm welcome to customers as they board.

Volunteers may also be asked to assist with the online shop, deliver leaflets to local hotels and businesses or represent Heritage Tram Tours at trade and tourism events.

The heritage operator is also appealing for volunteer tram conductors responsible for collecting fares, helping customers on and off trams, and operating manual points.

Gary Conn, Heritage Commercial Manager, commented: “We already have volunteers from around the country, and we are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has experience of working with trams, whether they are retired or still working on a light rail system, who can spare some of their free time.”

Further information about the roles, and details on how to apply, can be found here.
