Current Volunteer Vacancies

Conservation Club Member

We are looking for volunteers to join our new Conservation Club! If you are interested in conservation cleaning and would enjoy working across our heritage sites to keep the buildings are our collections in great shape then we want to hear from you. You don't need to have done any conservation cleaning in the past - if you enjoy working with your hands, have great attention to detail and would like to learn some new skills then we want to hear from you. You can find out more by reading the role profile.

The Club will run every Monday and you'll have the chance to volunteer at a whole range of our museums as this is a cross site role. You don't need to be free every week to volunteer but we do need you to keep the following dates free if you are applying:

Selection Day: 4th December
Induction Day: 9th December

Applications close on 24th November.

If you would like to apply for this role then please fill out our application form and email to: alex.nicholson-evans@birminghammuseums.org.uk or post to: Alex Nicholson-Evans, Volunteer Development Officer, Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, Chamberlain Square, Birmingham, B3 3DH

We have signed up to The Charter for Heritage Volunteering which ensures volunteers are well managed and volunteering programmes are well structured. The Charter is a best practice standard based on eight key principles which help to give volunteers a great experience when volunteering in Heritage organisations. You can find out more about the NHVC by following @HeritageVols on twitter or visiting their blog.
