Guildford Borough Council: Heritage Services is offering volunteering opportunities for many different events and activities, based mostly at Guildford Museum, in a friendly and sociable environment.
We are currently developing our work with the local community during the Your Stories Your Museum project and this means that we are putting on more events and activities, running new projects, undertaking more consultation with our visitors and we are looking for dedicated volunteers to support us in achieving this.
Activities will include talking to people about their opinions and hopes for the museum, helping prepare and deliver family workshops on a history, science or craft theme, giving guided tours, stewarding exhibitions and devising children’s quizzes.
We are looking to recruit a pool of volunteers so you can sign up to specific events and activities that interest you and fit in with your own timetable.
In return for your help we offer full training in the activities and support from our access and education officers as well as experience in most areas of working in the museum and its collection. This may be an ideal role to improve your CV or a way to make use of skills you have not used for a while, and get involved with your local museum.
Many of our activities are based at Guildford Museum but they can also take place at Guildford House Gallery and some out in various community locations.
