Thinking of Volunteering? – We will be recruiting again from 2nd November, 2015
Thank you for your interest in volunteering – we work with many enthusiastic volunteers of all ages across our venues and the support of local people is much appreciated at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, Bantock House, Bilston Craft Gallery and the City Archives.
Volunteering with us is a great way to meet new people and develop skills and confidence in a supportive and inspiring environment. Arts and Heritage is a competitive field so to reflect this, there is an application process for volunteer placements.
We receive a great many enquiries about volunteering and are currently working through our latest batch of applications. Due to the high number of enquiries we receive, we are unfortunately unable to offer volunteer placements to everyone who applies but we do take time to consider every application.
Depending on availability, opportunities change periodically (to include for example; researchers, technical team, and curatorial roles) but the roles we will be recruiting from November are:
Wolverhampton Art Gallery
Visitor Ambassadors: Support visitor assistants, help covering their breaks and researching the collections/artwork, utilising the knowledge acquired via research when engaging with visitors. Some knowledge of art and art history is helpful in this role but we are particularly interested in applications from those willing to develop excellent customer service skills.
Cultural Learning Activity Assistants: Help with schools and family workshops and events such as fun days. Activities will include prepping materials, setting up rooms, assisting artists and facilitators with delivery of activity and clearing away materials and rooms after sessions end. We are particularly interested in applications from those with degree level qualifications in, or undergraduates working towards qualifications in art, design or history, and / or teaching.
Bantock House and Museum
Visitor Ambassadors: Support visitor assistants, help covering their breaks and researching the collections/artwork, utilizing the knowledge acquired via research when engaging with visitors. Some knowledge of art and history is helpful in this role but we are particularly interested in applications from those willing to develop excellent customer service skills.
Your enquiry and application for volunteer and student placements is very important to us. You would be welcome to call or pop along for an informal chat at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Monday 2nd November between 11AM and 1PM to find out more.
We look forward to hearing from and meeting you very soon and in the meantime, thank you so much for offering your time.
