Peter, Clare Porter
Hello I'm Peter, a Lodge Porter for nearly 9 years. Required skills include a friendly manner, a good memory and a sense of humour. No two days are the same but duties include front of house, security, first aid, fire prevention, staff and student welfare. The most fulfilling aspects of the job are the meaningful relationships you develop with staff and students, together with the fact that the job you do is quite unique, in an incredible historic setting.
