The Volunteer Service
Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We are not recruiting new volunteers at present.
However, we will post opportunities as they arise and open recruitment more generally in the spring.
We will then start taking expressions of interest again, particularly from people keen to help with our programme of Summer family friendly events.
In the meantime, the Museum of Oxford is recruiting...
The Volunteer Service supports volunteers across the seven Oxford University Museums and Collections. We are very grateful to our volunteers, whose vital contributions make a real and valued difference to our work.
Most volunteers work with the public: from helping with family friendly activities to manning the information desk, and from stewarding late-night events to delivering introductory tours.
A small number of volunteers help in other areas of the collections: assisting curatorial, administrative, or education staff in a more behind-the-scenes capacity.
Volunteering can be a great way to build skills and confidence. You don't need specialist knowledge to volunteer; what you will need is an enthusiasm for the collections and a willingness to get stuck in!
