Help tell the stories of lives changed by war and conflict.

Imperial War Museums’ vision is to be a leader in developing and communicating a deeper understanding of the causes, course, and consequences of war. This role goes beyond delivering excellent customer service, it aims to challenge people of all ages to look at war and conflict from different perspectives, encourage debate, inform and educate and explore what happens when we go to war and the impact on people's lives.  

When we reopen we are going to need your help!

Discover Volunteers are the warm and welcoming face of HMS Belfast helping visitors in the discovery and orientation of the ship. You will be able to make recommendations based on their personal interest and provide information to make sure that they get the very most out of their visit.

Discover Volunteers are confident using their initiative, intuition and are proud of being an IWM ambassador. As well as helping visitors explore our exhibits and activities Discover volunteers also welcome school groups and help to point out key facilities, address access needs and highlight our ‘Hidden Gems’. As a Discover volunteer you will be there at the beginning of the visitor journey and will have the opportunity to make our visitors feel special and valued by informing, enthusing, and engaging in all that IWM has to offer. You will be able to make recommendations based on their personal interests and provide information to make sure that they get the very most out of their visit.

There is also the opportunity to develop/share skills and knowledge by leading activities that help visitors discover Communications at Sea (Morse Code, Semaphore etc).
