The Galleries of Justice Museum is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support their front of house team. The recruitment drive coincides with a £1 million project supported by National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund that will see the museum relaunch as the National Justice Museum in Spring 2017.
Volunteers will form part of a new Front of House Volunteer team and will provide a warm welcome, excellent customer service and engage with audiences of all ages and backgrounds in the redeveloped museum. There will be a range of positions available and volunteers will be needed to manage entrances, monitor and engage with visitors, facilitate a range of engagement activities and support the museum’s front of house staff.
Lynn Smith, a current volunteer at the museum said: “Volunteering at the Galleries of Justice Museum has given me a chance to use my skills and develop new ones, as part of a team, in a friendly and welcoming environment.”
Nicola Burley, Executive Director at the Galleries of Justice Museum said: ‘’This new development is very exciting for the museum and it’s a perfect time for new volunteers to join our team. The Front of House volunteer role is ideal for those wanting new experiences, to develop new skills and contribute to a local charity. The role is perfect for friendly people, with good interpersonal and communication skills. It’s a flexible time commitment that can include weekends, school holidays and the occasional evening. Ideally we’d hope volunteers could offer at least a day per fortnight in order to get the most out of the experience.’’
