Volunteering

We are lucky to have an amazing team of volunteers supporting us at all nine of our sites. Our volunteers get involved with a whole range of projects and activities and we couldn't do what we do without them. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Thanks so much for your interest in supporting us at Birmingham Museums, we aren’t recruiting for volunteers at present in response to the current situation and we are not certain when we will be able to open volunteering opportunities again.

To keep up to date with our volunteer roles and team you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and/or sign up to our Volunteer Interest List.

If you are aged 18 or over and would like to receive the Birmingham Museums Volunteer Interest List and be the first to hear the latest about our volunteering opportunities then please email: volunteer@birminghammuseums.org.uk

All of our volunteering roles will be advertised on our careers website when they become available.

Take a look at some of our wonderful volunteers in action and find out why they volunteer at Birmingham Museums by watching the video below.

We are extremely grateful of the time our volunteers dedicate to supporting us, and we really want to make sure we are giving all of our team as good an experience as possible.

As a Birmingham Museums’ volunteer you have:

  • An induction with us before you start to get you ready to volunteer
  • Access to ongoing role specific training and support
  • The opportunity to claim your travel expenses of up to £4.60 per day, in the hope that you won’t be left out of pocket as a result of giving us your time
  • Access to our monthly newsletter which will keep you in the loop with all things volunteering
  • The chance to join our Facebook group if you’re on social media

There are also plenty of opportunities to meet new people too, learn new things and really help your local museums. 

Our volunteering opportunities are open to anyone aged 16 or over. If you are under 18 we will ask for a parent or guardian to give permission for you to volunteer with us.
