Volunteer roles

We have a number of volunteer roles, for example:

  • cataloguing, researching, labelling, sorting collections, photographing collections
  • cleaning the collections and collection display areas
  • front of house work including serving refreshments at events and talks
  • hanging temporary exhibitions
  • welcoming people to our heritage themed events and activities

Volunteering can be valuable for people looking for experience to further a career in museum, the arts and tourism - it’s how many of the current museum staff started out!

Our volunteers are flexible in the hours they work, from half a day to two days a week according to the time they can spare or the task they are working on.

Since our redevelopment we have had a huge surge in volunteer interest and some of our most popular roles currently have a waiting list.
