Volunteering Programme

Volunteers on the Cutting Edge project working with the Metalwork collection © Museums Sheffield

***We continue to receive an incredible response to our volunteering programme, with volunteers supporting all areas of our work from collections research to retail. The majority of our volunteering opportunities are allocated at the moment but see below for details of the roles we are currently looking to fill. Be sure to check back for future opportunities as they become available***

Current vacancies include:

• Friends Membership Promoter Volunteer

Volunteers help in almost every aspect of what we do. Last year nearly two hundred volunteers contributed their time and skills to help us maintain our excellent museum and gallery service.

Four great reasons to volunteer with Museums Sheffield:

  • Learn new skills (or use existing ones)
  • Gain valuable experience working in the museums and galleries sector 
  • Contribute to a good cause
  • Make new friends

There are all sorts of ways you can help us whilst enjoying a fulfilling experience. All aspects of museum and gallery work are covered by the programme along with more general office roles and we offer training for some roles. We run the programme on a practical basis, finding volunteers to fit roles and tasks as needed by our staff. We will re-imburse you for reasonable travel expenses and other costs you might incur when agreed in advance.

How to volunteer: Fill in our online application form and we will contact you to invite you to a Volunteer Information Session at Weston Park Museum.

Applying doesn’t guarantee volunteer hours – If we have too many applicants for a role we may undertake a selection process. We will take references, and for some activities we may need to carry out a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Our volunteering opportunities are open to people aged 16 or over. We are currently unable to accommodate work experience or internship requests.
