Bring your organisational and adminstrative skills to assist us.

We are an active and busy society enthusiastically promoting the upkeep and use of the Basingstoke Canal. To help us to carry this out we need some voluntary help to:

1. Help with Boat Enquiries / Bookings.

As the number of trips grow, while the main booking system is “semi” automated, we need some part time support to assist with boat enquiries.

2: Administration assistance.

There are opportunities to help in either the BCA’s office (at Mytchett) or with the Canal Society’s team in supporting the day to day work of the Society.

This can, for example, be helping with customer enquiries, day to day organisation, etc.


General office skills.

Good telephone manner.

Knowledge of Word and Excel would be an advantage.

The role provides opportunities for those looking to return to work or for those who want to continue to use their skills.
