Are you looking to learn new skills, make friends or get involved in one of our exciting projects? Volunteering is a brilliant way to do this and support our work. We are also responsible for recruitment of the Reading Abbey Revealed volunteers.
We try to offer volunteering roles throughout the year and recruit volunteers for specific roles rather than accept general applications.
Want to volunteer but only have a little time available? This could suit you because it's flexible and you can do it in your own time.
If you are interested in applying for any of these roles, please download the role description (below) and apply using the registration form.
You might also be interested in seeing what volunteering opportunities are available with our partners at the Museum of English Rural Life (The MERL).
It's quick and easy to apply for a volunteering role. There are three basic steps - the documents can be downloaded from the bottom of this page:
1. Have a look at the role descriptions for our current vacancies
2. Read our volunteer policy
3. Fill in the registration form and email it to the address on the role description
Reading Museum is committed to providing training and ongoing support to our volunteers to help them flourish in their roles. We are delighted to announce that we have now achieved the Investing in Volunteers national standard, for the third time, as part of the Museums Partnership Reading with The Museum of English Rural Life (The MERL). Our assessment report is available to download below.
Our 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'.
