Giving a warm welcome to visitors, serving them on admissions and retail and keeping the museum shop stocked are just some of the tasks of the team of reception and shop volunteers.

This front of house role is for you if you’re outgoing, communicative, have an eye for detail, are happy to use a till and handle cash.

Key elements of this opportunity are giving a warm welcome to visitors to the museum, serving them both on admissions and retail and give them a first orientation on entry, keeping the shop clean and well stocked and occasionally work in the Post Office in the Street of Shops.

Skills

No prior knowledge is required, but most of  the Shop and Retail Volunteers have an interest in the museum and its ongoing story and want to gain experience in retail.

As this is a front of house role, excellent communication skills and confidence in talking with visitors is what they are looking for.

Appropriate training will be provided as and when necessary.
