We’re regularly looking for bright, friendly people who care about our eclectic museum as much as we do.
We have lots of opportunities to Volunteer at the Soane for anyone aged 18 and over. If you’re looking to gain experience for your CV, develop new skills or get involved with a world class museum, we may have an opportunity for you.
Volunteers at the Soane are engaged in assisting with our visitor experience, playing an important role in the daily running of the Museum. We also have volunteers assisting behind the scenes, in roles such as Conservation and our Picture Library. We will advertise any behind the scenes roles when they are available, but please get in touch if you’d like to find out more.
As a volunteer you will receive access to free training and out of pocket travel expenses.
Volunteering alongside experienced members of staff, and playing an integral role in the daily running of the Museum, Volunteer Visitor Assistants help to provide our visitors with a world-class visitor experience. The role includes welcoming visitors to the Museum, interpreting the different and unique spaces for visitors, and safeguarding the collections to ensure they remain as they were left in 1837 for future generations of visitors.
