Voluntary and Placement Opportunities

We are currently taking the time to catch up, evaluate our volunteer roles and ensure that we are supporting our current volunteers in the best way that we can. If you are interested in volunteering at The Bowes Museum, it is possible that we may not be able to accommodate you right away, however we would still love to hear from you as it may be possible to accommodate you to work on an existing project or we can keep your details until a suitable volunteering opportunity arises.  

Please email HR@thebowesmuseum.org.uk along with a bit about yourself, your skills and passions, and why you would like to volunteer at The Bowes Museum.

With huge thanks for your interest in volunteering with The Bowes Museum, and for your patience and understanding whilst we try to catch up with things.
