We are a volunteer-run organisation and depend entirely on the commitment, time and energy of volunteers.
The Museum seeks to involve volunteers to share skills and perspectives, increase our local contact with the local community we serve, to ensure our services meet the needs of our visitors and to offer opportunities for participation by people who might otherwise be excluded
The current volunteering workforce (45 at last count) is organised into a number of volunteering teams, each looking after a different aspect of the museum and its operation. Most volunteers are with one of the following teams :-
The Visitor Services Team who look after all aspects of the visitor experience from greeting visitors, ticketing, serving refreshments and explaining the exhibits. They are the face of the museum.
The Build Team who are called on when there is anything to make, mend or fit in the museum. They turn their hand to anything from entirely refitting and decorating an exhibit hall to mending a lock.
The Restoration Team who are responsible for restoring any vehicles or exhibits.
There are a number of other small teams and individuals who deal with a wide range of tasks including: publicity and advertising, membership and volunteering, health and safety, finance, funding, vehicle storage services, organising events, and the acquisition, archiving and display of exhibits.
We are presently recruiting for the following specific roles but are happy to meet and talk to anyone who thinks they have the kind of skills we might be looking for.
