Enthusiastic Volunteers Needed
If you have a keen interest in museums and have time to spare, would you consider volunteering at The British Horological Institute Museum?
The museum is entering an exciting time of development and is looking to recruit new volunteers to become a valuable part of the workforce.
We are currently seeking volunteers to help in a variety of roles including:
- Room Guides and Tour Guides to support new opening arrangements
- Marketing & Social Media
- Collections Documentation
- Education & Learning
- Creative Activities
- Research & Exhibitions
- … and more!
Collections Documentation Volunteer Project
We are also undertaking a project to catalogue the Museum Collection, Library and Archives onto a computerised database. For this exciting project the Museum is looking for people with good IT and keyboard skills, and attention to detail, accuracy and consistency. You do not have to be a horologist, and you will be trained in using the cataloguing system MODES, object photography and the handling of valuable items. Read more about volunteering on the Collections Documentation project here.
Work Placements & Internships
If you are interested in studying towards a career in heritage, the arts, or working in museums, a placement or volunteering role at the BHI Museum may also be something that you would like to consider. We can offer opportunities across a range of areas and will provide support so that you can develop the relevant skills and knowledge you need.
