Our Front-of-House shifts are split into mornings and afternoons:


Mornings: 10.00am to 1.00pm 

Afternoons: 1.00pm to 4.00pm

Front-of-house volunteers coordinate the smooth running of the reception area in the museum by extending a warm and informative welcome to all visitors. This is a key role and you must be happy working in a varied customer-orientated environment. Tasks include running the museum shop and dealing with museum queries.


This role will suit someone who has an enthusiastic, friendly manner, enjoys meeting people, and is computer literate. You should be happy to work as part of a team, but equally happy to work alone when necessary.
