Volunteers play a crucial role in the success of The Atkinson. We are looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who would like to offer their time to help make the venue a welcoming, vibrant and successful visitor destination.
What do Volunteers do?
Our volunteers carry out and assist with a wide variety of tasks around the venue.
Previous and current volunteers have assisted with the documentation and research of our collections, carried out cleaning and preventative conservation on objects, assisted in the preparation and delivery of our education and outreach programmes, carried out data entry as well as front of house meet and greet roles.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer with The Atkinson. It does not matter how much time you have to give or the skills, experience or background you have. Full training will be provided so all we ask is that you are enthusiastic about the work and aims of The Atkinson, willing to learn and meet new people, committed, reliable and happy to abide by The Atkinson’s health and safety and equal opportunities policies.
The Application Process
We actively encourage applications from all sections of the community. Applicants who are selected will be invited to an interview in the form of an informal chat, which will determine their suitability for the role they apply for. All successful applicants will be required to undergo reference checks before they are formally accepted as a volunteer and depending on the role, may require a DBS check.
