Volunteering

The Beverley Guildhall has a committed team of volunteers, some of whom have been involved with the Community Museum for many years. The volunteers mainly carry out research for the programme of temporary exhibitions on the social history of Beverley. Some of the volunteers also help with cataloguing of objects in the collection, and some with room stewarding or collecting oral histories by interviewing local people. The choice is yours.

Volunteering at the Guildhall does not involve committing yourself to coming in every week. Unless you are volunteering to help front of house much of the work is in the background and can be done in your own time, at your own pace, with the help and support of the curator, staff and other volunteers. 

We are not currently recruiting volunteers to our normal team, but a project is now available for younger volunteers (probably early to mid 20s) who would be interested in participating in a 'Youth Forum'. The aim of this forum is to consider how visitors in the 18-24 age range could be attracted to visit both the Guildhall and the other East Riding museums. This project would best suit people who are interested in pursuing a career in the museum sector, who may already have a bit of heritage experience, and would like to add something to their CV.
