We have opportunities for everyone who wishes to volunteer and we will be really glad to see you. We also have some volunteer vacancies for specific management roles, in particular in catering, front of house and marketing and publicity. All of these unpaid management roles come with an optional seat on the Operations Committee, which runs the museum. All the roles are very much hands-on. If you are interested in these vacancies contact us, or come to the museum any Thursday to meet us.
The tea room is open whenever the museum is open and is a major source of revenue for us. We are looking to improve the service we offer and require someone to make those improvements and manage its operation on a day-to-day basis. You will be in charge of all aspects of the catering service. You will be able to draw upon the museum’s volunteers to assist you in running the catering service.
Front of House Manager
The continuing success of the museum is dependent upon us providing an excellent experience for our visitors. We are looking for someone to help us maintain and then improve how we interact with our visitors. To this end, you will take charge of the management of all the visitor-facing activities. Almost all of the museum’s volunteers interact with the public to some extent and will be looking to you for inspiration and guidance.
Marketing and Publicity Manager
In addition to the regular openings, the museum provides special visits for groups and schools. It also runs history talks and a series of major fund-raising events. We need someone to take charge of the marketing of these activities and to publicise the museum through our website, social media and the traditional press. The museum has a number of volunteers with specialist skills who can help you fulfil this role.
