Reading Museum is committed to providing the best environment possible for our volunteers. In 2015 we achieved the Investing in Volunteers standard. You can download a copy of our assessment report below.

Our latest blog 'Snowdrops are acumen back to Reading Abbey' looks at how we work with local businesses and the interesting projects we have found for their employees' 'charity days'.

We are recruiting - check out our new volunteer roles!

  • Visitor Welcome and Donations  

  • Costumed Interpreters

We are now recruiting for Visitor Welcome and Donations volunteers to start from this month, and as part of the Reading Abbey Revealed project, we are excited to be offering costumed interpreter roles - a chance to dress in costume and share your love of history!  

We are no longer recruiting for events volunteers as we received a lot of interest for this role. If you were considering this role, please think about applying for the Visitor Welcome and Donations volunteer role.

To find out more about these roles, please download the role descriptions below. If you would like to apply, please read our volunteer policy and send in your completed registration form (see the steps above).
