Volunteers can make an important contribution to the work of the History Centre. Opportunities range from helping to preserve the collections to supporting the education work.

Volunteering can help you to develop your skills and provide work experience as a route into employment, further studies or to enhance personal development. Some of our previous volunteers have gone on to further education or into paid employment, as our Case Studies page demonstrates.

Volunteering can be a way to make new friends and use your existing skills productively. Retired professionals are welcome as volunteers.

Volunteering at the Hull History Centre is an opportunity to participate behind the scenes in one of the country’s most exciting heritage and research resource centres. Details of current opportunities we have identified are available but please do contact us if you wish to get involved.

A project to make publicly available Hull’s Second World War records, using the time and talents of 80 volunteers, has won Hull History Centre the prestigious national Archive Volunteering Award of 2013.
