About the Herbert

Volunteer

Volunteers make a vital difference to our work and we are extremely grateful to all our volunteers whose time and effort bring so much to the Herbert and its visitors. 

We are currently not involving/recruiting new volunteers.  When roles are made available again in the future they will be advertised.


What Do Volunteers Do?

The majority of the Herbert's volunteers work directly with the public welcoming visitors to events, assisting them in our exhibition spaces or helping the learning team with family activities. Other volunteers support the behind the scenes work of our marketing and collections teams. 

 

Who Can Volunteer?

You don't need to have specialist knowledge to volunteer, just an enthusiasm for our work and a willingness to learn new skills and/or working practices. 

Volunteers at the Herbert come from a variety of backgrounds. Our youngest volunteers are 16 and our oldest volunteers are enjoying their retirement years.

The amount of commitment time that we are looking for depends on the volunteer role but is usually flexible.

Role descriptions will identify what skills and qualities are needed. For example volunteers who help us with a public facing role need to enjoy meeting people, have a sense of fun and be interested in the museum, its collections and exhibitions.
