We are delighted to be supported by a large team of volunteers.

Most of our volunteers come in one day a week (ideally for a minimum of 6 months) and focus on one area, for example collections, events, front of house and so on.

To ensure that volunteering is as well-structured and mutually beneficial as possible, we only recruit when we are seeking support in a specific area. We do this by advertising the role, holding informal interviews and taking references. Successful candidates receive an induction and any necessary training.

Benefits of volunteering

You will be part of a small, dedicated team through which you will able to learn how the independent museum sector operates and gain valuable experience.

We offer an induction, training for your role if required, free entry to museum events and conferences, reduced rates on our evening courses, off peak travel expenses within Greater London and a written reference (following a minimum of 150 hours).

Volunteers are also welcome to join our weekly Freud reading group!
