Aldershot Military Museum Welcome Volunteers

Hampshire County Council Arts & Museums Service’s Community Museums -Welcome Host Volunteers.

We are now recruiting Welcome Host volunteers who provide information to visitors, help with the café and shop and support the overall operation of the museum. 

Typical tasks and duties involved in the role:

  • Welcoming and interacting with the public to ensure all visitors have the best possible experience
  • Assist with retail and café sales, this would include cash handling and record keeping
  • Touring the galleries and assisting visitors, whilst helping to maintain security for the museum
  • Assist staff with the setting up and the maintenance of events, exhibitions and activities
  • Support the implementation of evacuation procedures and follow guidance to help maintain safety & security on site
  • Assist with cleaning, preparation and the presentation of the Museum
  • Help with enquiries and receive objects offered for donation or requiring object identification

Who will you report to: Daily supervision by the Visitor Services Assistant and tasks established by the Curator. Full training is given and you’ll meet lots of interesting people. Volunteering can also be a stepping stone to higher education or employment.

 We welcome everyone 16 and over to become volunteers at Hampshire Museums, however, this outline will provide potential volunteers with guidance on the type of commitment that individual sites expect from volunteers before they take on the role of Welcome Museum Volunteer.

Aldershot Military Museum is open Wednesday to Sunday.

We expect a potential volunteer to commit to at least a three month period, and to undertake regular volunteering of at least once a fortnight at the community museum.

Aldershot Military Museum operates a morning shift of 9.00 – 1.15 and afternoon 1.00 to 5.15 on weekdays and on Saturday & Sundays 10.15 to 13.15 and 13.00 to 4.15.

I am afraid we don't pay travel or any other expenses.
