Ready-made volunteer roles

The Hull History Centre believes in the positive contribution that volunteers have made and can make to its services and collections. We want to ensure that people who share our passion for sharing, and caring for, our heritage can become involved with our work.

We are always thinking of ways in which volunteers can enhance what we do. This means that throughout each year ready-made volunteer roles will be advertised. Some of these roles will be one-off opportunities with fixed end dates, others will be ongoing.

We have received an overwhelming response to our call for volunteers so far. Spaces for volunteers to work with us are very limited, and we anticipate having more volunteer opportunities later in the year. If you wish to register your interest with us for future opportunities, please complete the application form. Registering your interest will mean that we can contact you directly when new roles become available.

The time commitment that we will require from you will vary depending on the role, but it will generally involve working in blocks of hours on a regular basis. Typically we will ask for a commitment from you to volunteer for a set period of time each week. We will agree with the successful volunteer when and for how long this set period of time will be.

Training and Opportunities
Successful applicants will be provided with inductions into their roles, and with a History Centre induction. Training on specialised skills will be provided at a basic level as required. To apply for a role you should complete the application form in the registering your interest page.
