The Volunteer Service
Thank you for your interest in volunteering.
We are currently recruiting new 'General Family Friendly' volunteers, especially anyone who will be around from June to September.
Please email us for a registration form and for information about upcoming inductions.
We are not currently recruiting for any other roles but will update this page when we are.
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!
