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.

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 available roles
2. Read our volunteer policy
3. Fill in and email the registration form to the volunteer co-ordinator

Please note that we are not accepting general applications for volunteering at present.

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.

Volunteering opportunities - update

We are offering a number of exciting volunteering opportunities this autumn - look out for more roles in the next few weeks! 

We are looking for additional people to join our Visitor Welcome and Donations volunteer team to complement our front of house service and a further Digital Content volunteer to help with online engagement about the museum and the Reading Abbey Quarter.
