volunteer roles

Do you want to offer your time as a volunteer, but do not have a set time commitment to give?

Occasional volunteering is a great way to get involved, but on a flexible basis. We are looking for volunteers to help at events and collections, where you decide how much time you would like to offer. If you would like to offer your time, you will be provided with full support and an event briefing so you feel adequately supported to carry out your role.

Please take a look below at the vacancies that are currently available.

If you'd like more information or to register your interest, please complete the form below.
