Join our mailing list


Our volunteers are vital in supporting the Museum's work. Sign up to our volunteering mailing list to be notified when opportunities become available.

More than 500 people donate their time to engage visitors in our galleries and support our scientists and collections.  Our volunteering, internship and work experience programmes are designed to inspire and benefit those taking part as much as they support the Museum. All opportunities have flexible commitment requirements and aim to provide a rewarding and enriching experience for all.

The Museum wants to help individuals develop new skills through volunteering, improving their career prospects and developing the vision of a future where both people and the planet thrive.  We aim to engage the widest possible audience and involve volunteers in our mission in creating advocates for the planet.  Volunteers in turn make a real difference to the Museum, investing their time, energy and talent in us

Update April 2024: We have a high volume of interest in all our volunteer roles so we continue to actively investigate opportunities that we may be able to offer.  Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a placement within a specified timeframe.   We welcome your registrations in the meantime and will keep you updated with any activities that are forthcoming.    

Please click on the 'Fill in an application' button to sign up. Please note, we only collect information that enables us to identify opportunities of interest for you.  Keep a record of the username and password you create as you will need these to log in and apply for advertised roles.
