Volunteer vacancies

Meet and greet: event and activities assistants

We are looking for volunteers to welcome people to our museum and give them the information they need to enjoy their day with us.

Roles and responsibilities

These are to:

  • provide a warm welcome to the museum
  • check event tickets and/or tick names off a guest list
  • provide directions to the cafe, toilets, event space etc.
  • hand out leaflets or comment cards
  • assist with washing up and tidying up during and after the event

This role would be suitable for someone who enjoys meeting new people and is friendly and polite. They will need to be comfortable working as part of a team and working on their own with minimal supervision. The role is mostly based within the museum but may involve some outdoor work if events take place in the park.

Photography assistant

We are looking for a volunteer to take photographs at our one-off events and activities to showcase the range of exciting activities that happen at Brampton Museum. The images are used in our promotion and evaluation reports.

This role could be suitable for a hobby enthusiast or a photography student looking to develop experience and a portfolio of work. We can  provide a camera or you can use your own.

This role would be suitable for someone who is friendly and polite, comfortable working on their own with minimal supervision and able to stick to a brief on the types of images that are needed. You will need an eye for a good shot but be aware of privacy issues, comfortable to ask people to sign consent forms where needed. The role is mostly based within the museum but may involve some outdoor work if events take place in the park.
