We are looking for a number of Volunteer Visitor Assistants to help us provide a warm and welcome experience to our 55,000 annual visitors, and to assist with the daily running of the Museum and Walled Garden.
If you would like to learn more about local history and the role the Stroud District has played internationally and enjoy meeting people, then consider joining the museum team.
The Museum has been given an award by Stroud District Council for the skills provided through our volunter and work experience programme. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, maintain existing ones or even share them with us!
To apply for volunteering opportunities please complete this application form.
