Volunteering Opportunities at the Museum of Power


EXPERIENCE VALUED BUT NOT NECESSARY

Our Museum Staff are supported by a dedicated group of volunteers who carry out the varied tasks that maintain, preserve and facilitate the daily operation of the Museum and its Tea Room.

Whatever your age, skills or availability, there are always opportunities for you to join us. If you think you could help us by giving a little of your time, we would like to hear from you.

To find out more and to see how we may be able to involve you in our work, please contact the Museum manager via the contact page. Alternatively you can fill in the Volunteers application form below or download the Volunteers Membership form from the bottom of this page.

Volunteer Recruitment Application Form

All potential volunteers are asked to complete a basic application form. This is because we require certain details to enable us to match you with appropriate roles that are mutually beneficial to you and The Museum of Power. We will conduct informal discussions with each volunteer recruit so we can review your needs and our requirements. Most volunteers will not require DBS checks (Formally CRB) unless volunteer roles require one to one contact with children or vulnerable adults.

Please Note: A Non-fee paying volunteer membership does not confer or imply any voting rights within Museum of Power, nor does it entitle the volunteer to free entry to the Museum except on those occasions when they may be rostered for duty within the Museum.

For details of full paid membership please enquire.
