About our roles
The Joint Museums Volunteer Service aims to widen access, increase depth of participation, and promote diversity, equality, and social outcomes through its volunteering opportunities.
It's about working in a mutually beneficial way to make the most of volunteers' talents, knowledge, experience, and interests, whilst also acknowledging the positive contributions they make to our visitors and collections.
We are very grateful to our volunteers and hope that they enjoy sharing their enthusiasm, building their confidence, and developing their skills in an inspiring, supportive environment.
Our volunteering opportunities
Handling plesiosaur fossils with the general public, digitising historic prints and conservation documents, welcoming visitors to temporary exhibitions, and helping to run the year-round programme of family friendly events... these are just a few of the opportunities that volunteers have been involved in in recent months.
